Quote of Whenever I Feel Like It: Life Imitating Art

“…who we are and how we relate to each other grows out of the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves and about each other. In a very real sense, who I am is the way I’ve lived out my story about myself, and how I treat you is the way I live out the story I have about you. These are stories that talk about where we’ve come from, where we are going, and how we plan to get there.”

–Mira Kirshenbaum, talking about Michael White talking about his book with David Epston, Narrative Means to Therapeutic Ends. Go read this for more.
