Here’s a question: What story are you telling yourself about yourself?
We tell ourselves stories about every aspect of our life. Here’s an example. A personal favourite of mine is the ‘helpless’ story. Here’s one:
“After 37 years, I decided I deserved better and left my marriage. I had no doubt that it was his fault we had reached this stage because I had a long list of complaints – everything he said or didn’t say and everything he did or didn’t do – that left me feeling resentful, frustrated, angry and hurt. People I thought were friends walked away and I was left feeling alone and misunderstood. I talked about my feelings all the time.
