We are playing roles since young

There are a lot of rules for us to follow, ever since the time we begin to learn about what is right and wrong during very young age. There are punishments awaiting us if we do "wrong" and rewards if we do "right". Hence we begin to fear being punished or not getting our rewards.

Later we learn there is a need to gain attention in order to receive these rewards and the gratification that we received from feeling alive and loved. We continue to do what others want us to do and it makes us feel good when there are rewards. Gradually, pretensions set in, just to please others or to receive these rewards.

Clairvoyant Maria Duval states that by trying to please others, we are playing our roles. We want to be someone we are not out of fear of rejection. Ultimately we become someone other than ourselves.
