One way to live is to see things in terms of your own life story, your own lived life, and the lived lives of people you know. How will you pay your bills? How will you make it through your old age? How will you be a good friend? How can you present yourself to people without being shamed? How will you fit in? -- everyone else is just living their life stories.
Another way to live is to see that there is something outside your life story, and the life story of anyone you know, which is real whether you acknowledge it or not.
