Truth or Dare Tuesday

Reframing is a term psychologists use for an old magical concept: that the way we describe and define reality determines the way in which we experience it. When we are possessed by the self-hater, domination frames all of our experience in the assumptions and terms of hierarchy. Reframing is an act of resistance, a posing of an alternate reality and value system by which to describe experience – one that affirms rather than attacks our sense of worth.

We can define a setback as a failure, or as a stage in growth. We can define a success as a culmination, or as a first step in a long process. The way we frame our experience determines what we will learn from it and where we will go with it.
