Published on August 18th, 2012. A friendly recently asked me how I was doing I immediately and enthusiastically rattled off the following highlights: My wife was about to return to college. Fold the paper up and place it onto a paper boat. Take the boat down to a local river and set it free.

As it floats away down the river, say an affirmation about letting go and moving forward with the rest of your life, unimpeded by the heartache of what didn’t happen. Turn your pain to gratitude. Living vicariously is a very common phenomenon.

In the limited time we have, We cannot experience every possible thing. So experiencing it vicariously is what you supplant in its place. For example, I would like to know how a surgery is done.

I as. The way you choose to measure your worth affects the kind of life you’ll live. Use a measuring stick based on factors you can control — not the external events in your life.

When you know.

I sit in front of my computer or a piano and try to create something out of nothing, and better yet, try to create “that something” that not only I will take pleasure in, but can be gratifying to others as well.

I try to immerse myself in work, read a lot, watch films, try to improvise scenes in front of the mirror, criticize myself, depress myself, hate myself, but when someone praises our catering, life seems good gain.

Suppose that out of a sense of moral obligation, or pretentious intellectual snobbery (Squidward anyone?), I spend the day engaging in interpretive dance or playing in a clarinet trio in the park, but these activities leave me bored and unfulfilled.

I also keep a gratitude journal and, at the end of a workday, I ‘come down’ by reading a great novel or just sitting with myself to come back to my center—it’s what I call going mindless.”

It is the desire for this feeling— sometimes actually achieved in the past, but only a future possibility— that keeps me playing music.

  • You are becoming my favourite channel. Your insightful views are really a breathe of fresh air in a time of social despair. You truly are Britains hidden national treasure. Thank you.

  • Its also like Nepotism and riding on someone else coat tail. Some friends get invited to events and parties because of their friendship with someone famous.

  • I had a co-worker who would do that to me. Every time they are praising me for something {which was often} she would come and stand right next to me….pretending she is my friend or know me
    To turn around and laugh at the gossips behind my back….pretending that I am her problem at time
    A real 2 face. Viciously living through others is a sick behavior to say the least��

  • I live in Loris SC, this is common in the folk here. They have no drive to make themselves better, they just leech of others lifestyles and settle for a 3rd person reality…..SAD!

  • Blessed love “empress” I am passing by, can I say love some of the work you do to uplift a people.
    Observation: I’ve noticed that the body language, topic as well as tone has changed along with motives I suspect, I get the feeling of being pushed by likes to turn a blind eye and seems to be reinforcing a division among listener and subscribers “conflict buying and selling” (remember no one can pay parents for them being born) all of our experiences of our parents are what society encourages and teaches, competition is the name of the game “don’t speak of parents in such a critical way almost criminalizing them it it wrong” I think you turned out okay ��������

  • I’m a self made, self motivated person. I was conditioned through the F.O.I. and given instructions to better myself as a man, sadly there’s these gangstalking losers here in Loris SC who want to take credit for my change, no, me knowing that they stalked me and me knowing that they tried to break me down as a man, motivated me. I linked in with real men who know about COINTEL PRO. and helped me navigate through the devils that live among me. sad thing is, they don’t even know that they are devils.

  • My mom was similar but out of genuine love and seeing her hard work pay off. I remember once saying I was moving back home and she went mad saying why I was coming back home for etc lol. I’m lucky to have a decent job and she was not happy with me walking away from that to come back. She was no way as your mother was but just trying make me see what I couldn’t. Love my mother my queen lol

  • I would say that this behaviour is some what a norm these days in the sense of how people are drawn emotionally to celebrities and reality programs to the point in which they will tweet / debate / be influenced by etc on the actions of the celebrity as some form of escape from their own lives. I do think there is a defining line between supporting and respecting someone’s achievements ( being a fan ) and living in the reality of ( thinking you are relative to ).

  • My mother wanted me to compete with her relative children but I did not. I was focus on getting to my goals so I had no time for that.

  • Some people like to push their way of life onto others, in some extreme cases even their tastes in fashion and music, and they don’t just push it onto friends or family, they even push it onto people they don’t know, it’s as though they think what is right for them must be right for everyone else, and they don’t seem to recognise that everyone is different.

    Are these people just basically trying to live through everyone? Or is this something entirely different?

  • This video was very insightful. I have known parents over the years who would turn their families’ (especially their children) achievements into an ongoing drama series! Almost every conversation would result in an episode of the latest acquisition, e.g. property and car purchases, any level of academic awards; relationships, employment details, etc. These episodes were often repeated. Even passing a driving test would generate much excitement. However, most of these folks are less forthcoming when events take a negative turn. Job losses, repossession of properties, court hearings and the occasional incarceration remained unspoken, even though they were fully aware that the news had somehowalready become ‘public knowledge’. I have only known one person who would ‘sacrificially’ disclose the misdemeanour and shortcomings of the family and ask people to “pray for them”!!! This person is a prominent member of the ‘Grapevine’!

    Acknowledging another person’s achievement with a sense of satisfaction is a good thing. However, to become immersed in other people’s lives is, in itself, unhealthy.

  • God bless you for video, you are so understanding, and I have 2 grown up children and I am very proud of them and what they have achieved, but I don,t tell them too much,.Your Mum is very proud of you! Stay blessed!

  • I also had a friend that would compete with me, she never gave me a compliment but she told everybody that we were best friends. I told her that she was not my best friend.

  • I’m from a white single parent family my dad bought us up, when my sister made it to university and got her degree we were proud of her still are, myself and my brother being typical lads mucked about, but we worked hard in work and got on and achieved in a different way. But I’m the sort of person who would be happy anywhere or what ever I was doing. The glass half empty or half full.
