“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.” Rumi, Essential Rumi
I totally disagree with Rumi, because lot of stories can change our lives, and there’s an other quote says: ” There no time to have your own stories, take others stories and learn, and make from your story a successful one”
and this one is the quote that I like to follow a lot, because technically we have no time to waste on experiencing things we know that they are wrong or half-wrong and we know that others tried it and didn’t work, so basically we have to look forward and seek for the good achievement !
So we must be satisfied with the story as long as it gives us a good reflection, and go toward our dreams, somehow he’s right from the corner of greating our myth and unfolding it, but we look for stories as an example, if he meant not seeing it as an example then I disagree with him, but if he meant to look forward then I agree with him!
