It’s a gift and a curse. You are the star of your movie. Your friends, family, and people you see often are the supporting actors. Everyone else, extras.
But here’s the thing: To everybody else, they’re the star of their movie.
It may sound dark, but no matter how much time and energy someone spends on another, we are each the main character in the movie we are living out. I find this to be quite liberating when we consider how much time we spend concerned over how much others are thinking about us.
These two truths help me in times of insecurity:
1) Nobody is thinking about you more than you are.
2) Everybody is worried about themselves.
