Everyone has his or her own story to tell. Stories are very seductive because we are so identified with them and make them become part of ourselves. But it becomes a problem when we cannot let go of our stories and move on. When we keep living in the same old stories and let these stories define who we are, we become lost. We will fail to live in the present moment and carry an increasingly heavy baggage with us. Stories are just the past. When we don’t let anything define us and we don’t define anything, we are free.
