So often, we get caught up in a narrative that have been told about us, that we tell about ourselves, that to abandon it or stray from it even a little, can sometimes lead to an internal crisis about who we are or what we have been living for. To avoid this pain, we sometimes cling to our stories, our identities, and even our trauma, because it is what we are familiar with. The problem is that the more we cling to what we are now, the more difficult it is for us to explore who we might become. The more we limit our growth and future potential to a single, narrow path often defined by our past.
