The Narrative



Do we expect too much?
Or do we receive too little?
We don't really earn anything,
that's a story we tell ourselves.
Everything is gifts.
The ability to craft a narrative.
The tendency to enjoy a narrative.
The need to depend upon a narrative.
The desire to wiggle free of a narrative.
The narrative tells us that we receive too little.
The narrative tells us that we expect too much.
The story that we tell ourselves
is one of the stories that others have told us.
