” All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages.” William Shakespeare, Act II Scene VII.
When Shakespeare wrote this famous quote for his play, As You Like It, he didn’t realize what he had said is completely and utterly true. Indeed, we all play numerous parts. We play sons and daughters, lovers and friends, even traitors and healers. These roles each and everyone plays into the big scheme of things, realizes that there are consequences, yet we do not care. It is how you and I alike survive this crazed uncivilized world. We walk around, with our heads in our books or in our laptops, just playing the roles that have either chosen us or we have chosen.
Sometimes, a person will play a role that is not meant for them. And when one does so, they fall into a never ending pit. It is easy to fall prey to wanting to play a role that is not meant for you, but one must remember that if you choose to do so, then you should understand the consequences you will gain.
This is not a scare tactic, it is a post about what you should already know about who you are playing.
What is the role that you have chosen to play? Did it choose you or did you choose it?
