“Every man is a bit player in every drama but his own.” ~ Moss Hart
The desire to control what others think of us is distracting. We concentrate on what we imagine that they think, try to improve on that, and forget who we really are.
But what others think is none of our business, and trying to control it is fruitless. The life that we really lead is what determines who we are to others; the important thing is what we think of ourselves. Giving up our grand role in our own story, looking within, and living a mindful life is the way to resolve the question, “Who am I.”
