Have you ever thought about how you’ve come to know yourself? For example, how did you determine whether or not you’re strong or weak, happy or sad, fearful or courageous, interesting or dull?
Are you aware of the stories you may have learned to tell yourself so that you could explain to yourself–or to anyone else–who you are and how you got to be that way?
Have you ever considered the possibility that your stories do not represent any sort of definitive truth about you?
Has it ever occurred to you that if the story/stories you’re currently living aren’t working for you, it may possible to change them?
