“If you change the way you tell your own story, you can change the colour and create a life in technicolour.”
— Isabel Allende
What is your story? Are you the hero, the villain or the victim of your tale? Do you face challenges or do you bear burdens? Do you have relationships that end when they are ready and learn lessons from them or are you love’s bitch ever suffering from the choices you make? Do you allow joy and humour in your tale? Do you allow for sadness? Do you accept the gifts that life has to offer you or do you throw them away for a handful of beans?
So much of who we are in our lives depends on how we tell our stories especially in our heads. If you feel beaten by life and feel justifiably beaten then maybe what you need is a change of perspective and a reframing on how you tell your tale.

Do you have a “formula” or a “how to” manual? Can you cite an illustrative example of how to reframe the story? Showing us how to do this would be extremely constructive rather than just stating a platitude. Thanks much.

Thank you. Your question is a good one and I am answering it in my blog tonight. Both in short form, that asking the question might spark people into self-examining the stories that they tell and in that way may find it useful and or helpful. After all, a short essay in itself cannot undo years of self-defeating behaviour .
That being said there is at least one school of therapy called Narrative Therapy that involves just that.
