Susan Cain, who wrote this article for Psychology Today asks:
"What narrative have you constructed from the events of your life"?
"The stories we tell about ourselves are the key to our well-being".
Susan says the "idea is not to delude yourself that bad things are actually good It is, instead, to find meaning in the progression from one event to the next. It is to recognize that everything constantly changes.
"Our stories are everything. They are the heart of love and of meaning. So what is your story"?
