56 Words

I do my thing and you do your thing.

I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, it’s beautiful.
If not, it can’t be helped.

(Fritz Perls, 1969)

The 56-word statement above, the Gestalt Prayer stated by Fritz Perls, was sent to me by a dearest friend this morning. Now that you’ve read it, you have the whole day to think about independence, self-autonomy and relationships as well.

Say it out loud every so often. Remember, words are worlds.
