My point is I should not have been in that scene; I shouldn't come back.
I should have exited screen left and never come back.
But back then, making my first film, getting invited back to the set,
cashing that check and having a ball, I wanted more screen time.
I wanted to be in the scene longer and more and come back into the scene, right?
But I shouldn't have been there: Wooderson shouldn't have been there.
It is just as important where we are not as it is where we are.
The first step that leads to our identity in life is usually not "I know who I am."
I know who I am. That's not the first step.
The first step's usually "I know who I am not." Process of elimination.
Defining ourselves by what we are not is the first step that leads us to really knowing who we are.
