A somewhat naive term referring to "When someone thinks they are the main character of their life."

It is naive because everyone IS the main character of their life, everyone is the main character of their own story. Believing you are the main character of the whole world, or all of time is called narcissism, and this term is basically a way to conflate things like focusing on yourself or your ambitions with narcissism.

I would not recommend using it unironically, or towards this definition at all if you have any self respect.
