“Have you been telling yourself stories

“Have you been telling yourself stories about lucky breaks when you were in exactly the right place at the right time to experience something wonderful? Or do you remember only the hateful parents, the unfair bosses, the unspeakable abuses and the horrible injustices? The key to happiness is knowing what to leave OUT of the story you tell yourself about the forces that made you who you are. Our life stories should come with a disclaimer: ‘This story that I tell about myself is only based on a true story. I am in large part a figment of my own yearning imagination.’ A life story is an intensely useful fiction.” – Jonathan Gottschall, from “The Storytelling Animal” #Story #Coaching
