“That’s My Story”
Thursday, May 15, 2014
We all create stories about our lives. These stories are attempts to make sense out of the things that happen to us, particularly the things that go wrong. I always attract losers. Bad things always happen to me. I get taken for granted in relationships. I always mess things up in the end. We look for and remember experiences that confirm our stories while ignoring possible experiences that would contradict them. We then live our stories rather than our lives and wonder why nothing ever changes. Come to this talk to explore ways we can out grow the stories we tell ourselves.
