The importance of your life story and why you need to tell it now
What is your life story? I' m not talking about where you were raised, where you went to college, where you got your first gig, etc. What is your STORY? Which story did you construct from the happenings of your life? In keeping with the intriguing area of" storytelling psychology", the tales we tell about ourselves are the keys to our well-being.
When you have reinterpreted the happenings of your life in such a way that you are unhappy or imprudent by nature, it is difficult to look to the optimistic forwards. Vice versa, if you recognize that you made errors and had problems, but you are ( or have already seen) seeking salvation, you will be much better in your life (and your future).
Isn' that further evidence that your carreer is going nowhere? How about your amnesty? You will move from victory to heartache to dullness and back again in your life, sometimes within a full working days. So what to do with so many feelings, so many incidents?
