Stories are just Stories

I have found it very easy to make up stories about how people don’t like me. I recognize and dismiss those stories quickly these days but before Logosynthesis, it was difficult to do.

I think it started the summer after 6th grade. I was invited to be in a club which I loved. After summer vacation, I was told that the club had disbanded. Later I learned that the same girls had formed a new club just like the last one, only this time I wasn’t invited.

At the time, I was devastated.

The story I told myself was that they didn’t like me because I was defective in some way.

Nobody told me that this is just what girls this age typically do to each other or that there might be a different explanation.

When something similar happened to our daughter, my husband and I helped her create a different kind of story.  We talked about how she was trying to be someone she wasn’t in order to please those girls and suggested she find girls more like herself. She did and as far as I know, had no residual problems.

If you have stories that still trouble you, learning to use the special Logosynthesis sentences will help you reclaim your energy to create better stories for yourself.

This paragraph is a comment I wrote about a passage on Page 67 of Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®.) You can see the passage in the book. You can also see the excerpt here. This link will take you to Bublish.com, where I regularly publish comments on parts of this book. This is a site where authors share of their work. You can subscribe to my musings, there, as well as to the musings of many other authors. It’s a great place to learn about new books and I recommend that you visit.
