The stories we tell have the power not only to reveal something about ourselves, they also play a role in shaping us. Words are powerful creators. Tell yourself or someone else something often enough – particularly when it relates to your inner state – and it takes on a degree of reality it otherwise would not have had. It works both ways, reinforcing that which exists and calling forth that which does not.
Our stories create a feedback loop. Whether it’s a positive or negative one is up to us.
