When we are actors, playing our roles on life’s stage

We lose the ability to be objective or unbiased

Occasionally we need to extract ourselves from the drama

And observe life as a spectator, from a distance

Deeply involved in our daily struggles, we forget often

That we aren’t the only players in this arena

Looking at life as it happens, from the angle of an outsider

We do learn how to put things in their proper perspective


I was taught this wisdom by my late father in law! And I have benefited a lot from this advice at time of stress.

  1. very wise advice Sadje … I’ve had the same advice given in the terms of ‘like a grandparent watching the children play’ … you are very present but not directly involved … brings a whole new perspective 🙂
