Taking a close look at the stories we tell ourselves about our lives can give us valuable insights into the themes of our lives. Do we see ourselves as victims? Or as resilient survivors? Do we remember only pain? Or fun and forgiveness and love above all?
Our lives all haves shades of gray, complicated mixes of joy and pain and nuances that are often more apparent to us than to those close to us.
How and what we remember and the stories we tell ourselves can have a major impact on our later lives and on our relationships.
