Do you have a story? Do you tell your story to anyone that will listen…over and over? Could you be slightly annoying to those that come in contact with you? It may be…..My life is full of problems story, things that make me angry story, my annoying family story, I am toooooooo busy story, how annoying everyone else is story, my horrible job story?….you get the drift. Do you replay the same old problems over and over in your mind or even worse…… to anyone you come across? Are you like a broken record? Telling your story over and over. Do people see you coming and run the other way? Under their breath are they saying “Here we go again….we have to listen to this AGAIN”
What we focus on grows…so by replaying our woes over and over we actually increase their power and their impact on our life. Some times we don’t even realise what we are doing. We just continue on replaying our stories in our own mind or to anyone that will listen. We don’t resolve anything. We aren’t even really asking for advice…we just want others to know that we have problems. Any suggestions given to us to resolve/change the issues are met with “That won’t work” “You don’t understand” “Nothing can be done” STOP! Time for our story telling to end. Time to work on issues, resolve them, forgive or learn to accept…..we need to move on. Are people sick of your stories? Time for a change, a positivity shift. Be someone others want to be around not someone people turn and hide from. Story telling can easily become a habit …..so how about making positivity our new habit??
Have you ever been guilty over replaying a story over and over but never actually really trying to resolve the problem? Are there “stories” that you have stopped telling and actually moved on from? Please share…..
