If you were born with a disability or raised in poverty or had a parent die at a young age…These are examples of external conditions that deeply alter the course of our lives. In other words, it’s a drama that you live.
And for the rest of us, we create a drama to make our lives more interesting. Because we are bored. Because we are hiding. Because we want to be noticed or want to be heroes in someone’s story.
“Life is hard” is a mantra we can’t adopt without first having something difficult to live through.
