deeper stories

29 narrative arc

We can feel overwhelmed in an unfamiliar place or situation or task, or when a conversation or relationship isn’t going as well as hoped.

So, we’re tempted to withdraw and retreat and doubt who we are and what we can do.

Let’s hit the pause button before this goes into free-fall.

Just below the surface to this is your deeper story, the amazing narrative arc you find yourself on: where you have come from, what you have done, and how this carries you towards your future.

None of this has changed.

In your story, you feel most courageous, generous, and wise.

This deeper story is the means by which you can explore and inquire within the unfamiliar, within the pear-shaped experience, making it possible not only to recover, but grow.

Wherever you are, take your story.
