At twenty we worry about what others think of us;

At forty we don’t care about what others think of us;

At sixty we discover they haven’t been thinking about us at all.

Hmm…the center of the universe…for sure we are all …the center of our own universe…but…. THE UNIVERSE???

I bet we can all remember…when we  were younger…and worrying…worrying about what others thought of us…We worried about our clothes, our hair, our cars…and more…Did we fit in??…And no matter how hard we tried…we would always worry…Funny though…Do you ever remember worrying  in that way about  others??…..I  sure don’t….so why is it that…we assumed they/others… would think  about us????…

Doesn’t it stand to reason that …during those years…as everyone is worried about …what the other person is thinking of them…the other person is worried about what others are thinking of them too???…and so…it would make sense to assume that…no one is thinking about anyone but themselves!!!..Interesting that it takes us so many years to figure that one out…to realize that …no…the universe does not revolve around us.

For sure we will all experience times of success…or times of great excitement……a time when we may have a lapse of reality…a moment of regression…when we feel we are the center of the universe…. But…as the years go by…we know …we aren’t and  we never were.
