Our Life Script

Written by Dr. Jacqueline B. Sallade, Community blogger | May 25, 2012 12:06 AM

Our life story emerges from the basic story of our families in the beginning--where they're from, what they name us, their hopes and expectations, their personalities. There's a basic script, such as "you will be stylish," "you will be educated," "family will be everything." It's not always positive. The bad scripts include substance abuse, poverty, other abuses, and some of the scripts say "you will be damaged," "you are inferior," or "you're not lucky." People can live up to their scripts and play them out or break out of them, defying stereotypes and seeking experiences which expand their relatities, and, therefore, their selves. Or, they can compromise.

For example, one child of a pious, large family grows up to be a religious and productive family man, while another becomes an irreverent, single partier. An only child of serious scientists grows up emotionally spoiled but ultimately responsible. One of ten siblings consciously chooses to have a small family.

Scripts aren't written in stone. They can be sculpted. It helps to be aware of them as we move along in this life.Our life story emerges from the basic story of our families in the beginning--where they're from, what they name us, their hopes and expectations, their personalities.
