Is this true?
That’s one of the most powerful questions we can ask ourselves.
You see, our minds are great at making up stories.
Movies that maybe worked for us once-upon-a-time, but now no longer serve.
And yet that familiar tale is so enticing, our minds can’t help yet follow the narrative.
But can we press pause and ask: Is this true?
Maybe there are some holes in the story. Perhaps something doesn’t quite fit.
Could it be that the great horror-blockbuster going on in our head is more badly written than a B-movie schlock-fest?
The secret is to press pause – to insert a gap that gives us space to question our story.
That questioning might make us feel uncomfortable… but it’s worth trying.
