Old Stories

They’re everywhere:

Every time I do this, it’s like that.

Last time I tried X, I got Y.

Whenever we see a problem like this, we underestimate it.

Unrecognized and unreflected-upon, these kinds of stories will keep setting their old snares.

Once we see them and get specific, we can begin to escape. Just because it was like that last time doesn’t mean it has to be that way this time, too.
