Many of us spend most of our life trying to live someone else’s life. We are great fixers, and as we watch others we can hear ourselves attempting to ‘sort them out’. We hear it in our conversations with others and with ourselves. It sounds like, “They shouldn’t…weren’t they awful…did you hear about so and so…in my opinion they should”.
In these moments we waste time trying to write the script of others and forget to write our own. We have no right to write another’s script and any attempt to do so is futile, frustrating and doomed to failure.
So let be, and taste the freedom from the subtle tensions and anxieties about others by letting them write their own script. Don’t miss your life by trying to live someone else’s.
