AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN FIVE SHORT CHAPTERS

I'm passing along this story that was given to me and I hope it helps you, too! Especially for a good friend of mine who needs to read this and believe it!


AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN FIVE SHORT CHAPTERS

I

I walk down the street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I fall in

I am lost...I am helpless

It isn't my fault.

It takes forever to find a way out.

II

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I pretend I don't see it.

I fall in again.

I can't believe I'm in the same place

but, it isn't my fault.

It still takes a long time to get out.

III

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I see it there.

I still fall in...it's a habit.

My eyes are open.

I know where I am.

It is my fault.

I get out immediately.

IV

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I walk around it.

V

I walk down another street.

  1. Sometimes it seems the hole is so big that walking around it takes just as long as climbing out.
