“Somebodyism”

“Funny how that happens. I finally smiled, remembering something I heard Ram Dass say on the radio once, about somebodyism – how most of us are raised to be somebodies and what a no-win game that is to buy into, because while you may turn out to be much more somebody than somebody else, a lot of other people are going to be a lot more somebody than you. And you are going to drive yourself crazy.”

Bird by Bird, Anne Lammot (New York: Anchor Books, 1995), 220.
