stories

I have been very intrigued with the discussions about interacting brains and the storyteller. I saw a friend today and she looked at me with a strange look and I could not distinguish if she was upset with me, or what was going on so I asked. Her response, "that's your stuff, I am not upset with you. I am having a bad day." It is so easy for one to tell stories without even realizing we are telling these stories at times. This I believe for me is the heart of the therapeutic process and understanding of the self. Figuring out what these stories are that are in the unconscious, how they are helpful and what stories do no good (by telling them, figuring out they do not work? and either putting them aside or simply getting rid of them)... And moving on from there.
