98: Drama Stories

Have you ever experienced that moment where all of a sudden your reality shifts and things that you thought were real aren't true anymore? In today's episode, join me on a journey to Alaska chasing the Northern Lights where an unexpected discovery taught us profound lessons about overcoming drama, shifting perspectives, and choosing the stories we tell ourselves.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Problem: slipping into drama and telling ourselves stories that involve blaming, victimizing, or controlling our lives and others.
    • The Drama Triangle: the roles of persecutor, victim, and rescuer that we slip into when we aren't seeing things clearly, resulting in damaged relationships and unfulfilling patterns. 
  • The Solution: shift your perspective by asking yourself powerful questions like "Am I 100% sure this is true?" to learn the facts about a situation instead of the story you think might be true. 
  • The Application: two main tools can help you get to a place of fulfillment and radiance:
    1. Get clear about the facts: focus on what’s true, like the weather or the actual words someone said.
    2. Decide what you want those facts to mean: it’s up to you to decide how you want to experience a situation, because the narrative you craft is what creates the emotions you feel. 
  • The Invitation: drop the drama and choose narratives that create love and connection with yourself, others, and God, so you can lead a more fulfilling and radiant life.
