I discovered an empowering solution when I understood that my level of suffering was directly related to the story I was telling myself about my circumstances. Was it “horrible” or “unfortunate” that I’d made that mistake? Was it “betrayal” or “their choice” when someone didn’t do as I thought they should. Was it “stressful” or “challenging” to deal with a new job or unanticipated changes? I finally understood that I could change my mood by changing my words and this – changed my world. ~Susan Kingsley-Smith
