You decide how the story of your life is told.
One of the most powerful acts of self-care you can make is owning your life story. This core story is your personal narrative, based on the ideas you’ve collected and internalized about yourself, your experiences and the world around you.
This is the story that lives at the center of your being — the story that influences every aspect of your life. It colors everything you do in life (what you believe you’re capable of, whether you believe you’re worthy or not, the meaning you assign to interactions with others, your levels of personal happiness, etc.).
