It doesn’t matter if our hurt is caused by a painful breakup or we’re struggling with something smaller, like an offhand comment by a colleague or an argument with an in-law.

If we can learn how to feel our way through these experiences and own our stories of struggle, we can write our own brave endings. When we own our stories, we avoid being trapped as characters in stories someone else is telling.

Moments

Treasure the moment you answered a question in class and everyone cheered. Treasure the memories of that beautiful stranger that admired your shoes and went away. Treasure the first moment you stood in front of your first audience and gave a powerful speech that was followed by a standing ovation. The memories of your little ideas that solved major problems. Your memories with friends and families and the laugh you shared. Treasure those moments.

All those memories were you, and at the end of it all, it is left to you to decide what will be written in the story going forward. Because, life happens to us all, your response to situations in life are the determinants of the lessons to be learnt from your story.
