I’m not changing their story.
I’m changing mine.
It takes too much energy to change someone’s story of me. It doesn’t work anyway. I’m spending that energy moving forward with my own story. I prefer to have fun cultivating my own life, than trying to get in line with someone else’s expectations for mine.
People develop their own story of me. It’s flawed, a fabricated tale, filled with biases and wrong-headed assumptions. I can’t change what they think. I’m too busy focusing on me and my story.
That what’s I control. Me and my story.
