You're the star, playing the lead role in the story of your life. However, in addition, you also have roles in many other stories where you're one of the extras or playing a supporting role.
Not every scene is about you. When it is someone else's scene, try not to draw the focus towards yourself. When invited give your opinion, otherwise keep your opinions in check. When you understand that this is their scene and they're playing it their own way, you're free to concentrate on what you're doing.
