You can get ready with your next set of lines to use in THEIR script

I never stopped caring what people think. But…

I have a few tricks for dealing with it that I didn’t used to. One of them is remembering “private minds”. No one _can_ know what someone else is thinking. Physically impossible.

You can’t know what they’re thinking.
They can’t know what you’re thinking.

We *think* we can… but mindreading only works when you’re both reading off of the same script. So… it’s not really mindreading.

But, thanks to the fact that most people _do_ use scripts to judge people, once you understand the script YOU’RE reading from and the script THEY’RE reading from… and how the same actions/words/etc are interpreted differently depending on what character you are in each other’s plays…

You can get ready with your next set of lines to use in THEIR script and guide your character in THEIR play so that their character of “you” becomes a Good Guy.

Manipulators use this unfortunately, as well. But I use it as a coping skill for dealing with misimpressions and I want people to get to know the real me better.
