About Tutorial day: Life Scripts & Games People Play
We create stories about our lives, what they have been and what they will be. This starts in childhood where we weave our perceptions of our selves and of the world around us into a narrative about what we can and will do. These life scripts then continue to have a deep and unconscious effect on how we live our lives. They affect the decision we make. They control what we think we could easily do and could never do. They shape our self-image. Games are the tools to act our script. They are repetitive pattern of transactions between people where something is happening out of awareness at a psychological level that is different from what is taking place at a surface level and which leads to some kind of outcome or pay off, generally but not always in the form of negative feelings or attitudes. In playing a (psychological) game we are following outdated strategies that we used as children to get what we needed. Game playing is one way of manifesting and reinforcing a life script.
