What does your story do for you? Does it enable you? Does it destroy you? Or does it empower you? I used my story for so many years as an excuse to react the way I did. Eventually I realized it didn’t help me grow, my story kept me stagnant. As soon as I let go of my story, a sense of freedom came over me. It had held me down for too many years, I had grown accustom to the weight. I didn’t need the extra baggage, I thought I did for so long, that was the dysfunction of my perception, my mind playing tricks on me. I was my own worse enemy until I rewrote my script, making sure there was no room for excuses.
