Telling Stories

To the ones of us who remain true by knowing how to tell ourselves our own stories.

"Do you feel cheated?"
"The trick to not feeling cheated is to learn how to cheat. "
- From the movie "The Brothers Bloom"

Stories
Are what we live in
They get us up in the morning
Dream with us at night.

Stories are very fragile, though.
Once shared they become weak,
Less personal, somehow less true
They become
Memories, partners on the downhill
Romantic stroll to the cemetery.

You are missing the point.

It really depends on how much you believe in your story. If you truly believe in it then it stops being a story and it becomes reality. Share it as much as you like and it will never become less true.

Memories, partners on the downhill
Romantic stroll to the cemetery."

Yes, if this is the story you choose to tell yourself.

Choices, choices. I suggest you saw the video again.
