Story Confusion

All current stories feed all current experiences, creating new stories which in turn explain new experiences.

The problem lies in confusing your story for the essence of who you are.

In other words, the story you may have come up with previously for an experience is either no longer true or was never true to begin with, the story just served to help you through the experience.

Or the story you tell yourself now is actually built upon layers of stories that are no longer true.

Stories are meant to help you understand yourself but the story is not YOU.
