"It is not the neurotic's self-concern, whether pity or contempt, which breaks the circle formation; the cue to cure is self-transcendence!" ~ Viktor Frankl
Ah, yes to take my 'cue' and realize that the suffering, the embarrassment, the shame, was all written, directed, and acted out by me. Life becomes fun and amusing when I hold this to be true; where I an take a moment after an event, look about me thoughtfully, and joyfully say "...And scene!"
