Frank Ostaseski

‘We habitually string ourselves together with various shiny ornamentations to shape a positive self-image, sometimes inflating our capacities or importance. Conversely, we may add fuel to the fire of a negative self-concept and exaggerate flaws and weaknesses. We know intrinsically that this construction we carry around and project to the world is not substantial or real, and yet we invest in it and come to mistake it for reality.
Then something comes along and exposes what seemed so solid. We realize that we are constantly changing impressionss and representations; that our story is held together by nothing more than spit and glue and habit.’ (The Five Invitations)
