The best way to change the story you tell is to change your experience. Don’t just write a new story; live a new story.
Shame turns behavior into identity. It thrives in darkness, lives off of secrecy, and stops us from moving forward. At any time we can shake it off by stepping into the light.
Don’t believe lies told to you based on past events. Show yourself the evidence from the present that proves your version.
The stories people tell you about yourself can keep you trapped in a prison of an outdated identity. You don’t have to believe them.
Letting go is never just about the surface thing. What makes it so challenging is what lies beneath the surface thing.
When you’ve spent your whole life being defined as a thinker, how do you find identity beyond your thoughts?
Before creating something new, we must let go and grieve all that was before, and all that never came to be.
