All the World’s a Stage

There is a great poem by William Shakespeare called “All the World’s a Stage,” and I really like the idea behind it. “All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players.”  So our world is a stage and we are the actors, and guess what – you’re the star of your own show! (And you never thought you’d be famous?) It’s okay to let it be all about you sometimes…this is your life, your show, your own mix of comedy, drama and romance.

Yes, we need to be sensitive to others and their feelings, but don’t let them overwhelm you. Many times I get stressed because I worry too much about someone else’s problem. I have to step back and realize that if it’s not my personal dilemma, I shouldn’t let it bring me down. Also, I tend to feel bad when I get upset about something minor that has affected me…yes, there are a lot of things that are worse in life, but it doesn’t change the way something makes you feel. A big deal to you or me may be insignificant in the big picture, but it’s our big deal! So don’t try to suppress your emotions or deny them. Feel the way you do so you can overcome it, and then you will shine – just like the star of the show.
