Scripts People Live

A “stimulating and thought-provoking” guide to help you make productive and autonomous choices toward rewriting your life (Los Angeles Times).
We choose a “life script” at an early age. But you can change its course. Whether born into wealth or poverty, into nurturing families or damaged abusers, fostered by strict parents or careless and undisciplined ones, each individual still has a spiritual core that exists independent of the environment and is equally crucial to his or her destiny.
Countering the fundamental principle of psychiatry which asserts that emotional and mental distress comes from within, Claude Steiner believes that people are innately healthy but develop a pattern early in life based upon negative or positive influences of those around them. Those influences can rule every detail of our lives until our death. Thus children decide, however unconsciously, whether they will be happy or depressed, winners or failures, strong or dependent, caring or cruel, and having decided, they spend the rest of their lives making that decision come true. For those who choose to live by their negative script, the consequences can be disastrous unless they make a conscious decision to change.
In Scripts We Live, Steiner tackles the puzzle of human fate. He reveals what determines our life scripts, and how each person’s combination of spirit and circumstance contributes to the final path that life takes. And he offers hopeful advice and practical analysis so that we all can rewrite for ourselves more meaningful and fulfilling lives.

    Children are trained to live in discomfort. Because they are not given an opportunity to choose what feels good for themselves and have to do things chosen for them by others, they are often in a state of mild or acute discomfort. Wearing uncomfortable clothes, sitting quietly, being scared or hurt without having permission to express unhappiness —all of these are painful situations which are a child’s lot. As a consequence, children learn (and this is especially true of boys) to bear pain without complaint.

    The discount, then, is the way in which parents and others in the child’s world interfere with the youngster’s potential for knowing the world and the way in which the growing powers of understanding of the child are stunted.

    Discount es cuando una etapa adulta descarta inmediatamente lo que el otro está diciendo. Por ejemplo, llega el niño con miedo y dice que tiene miedo. Se está procesando por ambas partes desde el ente adulto. No debes tener miedo...estpá descartando. En lugar hay que preguntar por qué y dar expicaciones para que aprendan a ser aceptados en su faceta adulta y entiendan la razón de su miedo.

    It can be seen from this discussion that a person or group of persons who free themselves from the strictures of the stroke economy will regain control of the means for the satisfaction of a most important need; consequently, they tend to disengage themselves from the larger society
