To whom it may concern.

The world doesn’t revolve around you. It’s hard to accept that when your immediate world seems to be affected by everything you do or say. For better or worse the primary perspective through which one views the world will always be one’s own.

Let’s indulge in a little thought experiment: Assume that your life is a movie. You are the protagonist, others form the supporting cast. Now all those people who form your supporting cast have you as a member of their supporting cast in their own movies where they rule the roost.

Never forget the degree to which we entertain self-indulgence. Whenever possible, try to put yourselves in other’s shoes. Give them the benefit of doubt whenever you can, don’t assume malice when there is none.

People aren’t there to get you, people aren’t there laughing at you. They are as worried and as scared of things as you are. Talk to them, humanise them, don’t make monsters out of men. Take it easy, the world does not revolve around you, and it’s a good thing.
