So, if you are responding to your personal stories that likely have some inaccuracies, how do you deal with this? One option is to really pay attention to what you are saying, including noticing if you are jumping to conclusions. Then challenge those thoughts. Notice if you are coloring your stories with your viewpoints and beliefs. And if you feel that this is inevitable, why not choose positive and life-giving beliefs and scenarios. Maybe all of your stories won't have a happy ending, but I bet many more will.
