is not what actually happened…even if it is a good story!
Sometimes the best told story is a fabrication of what was.
To continue telling the story over years perpetuates the illusion it is true. Yet what is true is the suffering that the story creates for others.
Bottomline: If you are embellishing a story, ask yourself what needs are being met for you. Especially if you have an inkling that over the years an illusion is being perpetuated.
