"Life is short" (adapted from the sayings of Robert Brault). So you struggle to find the time to do all that needs done; to make time for the important things in life; too much time--to little time. What is important can happen in a moment while misery is strung out over years dripping slowly like a kind of torture. Your expectations of the problem and what solutions are possible will be challenged while lasting change may happen without discovering you're making it.
Once upon a time . . . Story--the bedtime kind; the summer beach kind; and your life's story are all narrative--and yours is how you explain what has happened to you. These "stories" or explanations have been written--you may assume--by things outside yourself--your fate, parents, place in life; but stories can be rewritten and looking at your story it may be asking to be rewritten by you.
