It’s just the story we tell ourselves

There is your story, my story and the truth.

The truth on what we think happened; it’s just the story we tell ourselves. It’s not how it is though.

We tell ourselves that it’s okay to eat one cookie. One cookie was good. So now I will have two cookies.

We tell ourselves a story that is favorable to the hero (which is us). To shield us from blame, shame, failure so that we can remain safe and secure.

“It’s okay; you’ll do better next time. You really didn’t want to blog anyway.”

Don’t let this story drive you away from actually doing something meaningful today.

Prejudices, biases, experiences, nature, nurture have all shaped the stories we tell ourselves. Maybe it’s time to stop listening what it going in our head and start telling ourselves what we are going to do.
