We all believe stories about ourselves—stories others tell us and stories we tell ourselves. Some stories are that we are clever, beautiful, resilient, strong. Others are that we are incompetent, unattractive, jealous, weak. We rarely ask if these stories are true. Key to being our true selves is to know which stories are true and which we can let go.
