  •  How are you at being objective? Some can do it & (6+ / 0-)

    some can't.  Here is an idea: write up your true background, but do it as though it is the background of a fictional character. Pick a name and write that person's story (which happens to be  the same as yours).

    I know that disassociation is a symptom--but as someone (Freud?) said,  creativity is the Id in service of the Ego.

    So distance yourself--write it up as a dispassionate but compassionate observer.

    Hope this helps.

    Fiscal conservative: a Republican ready to spend $5 to save a dime--especially if that dime is helping a non-donor.
