Heart to Hearts with Anna. Autobiography in Five Chapters by Portia Nelson

Life goes on (with or without you). Choose Life.

Life goes on (with or without you). Choose Life.

Chapter One

I walk down the street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk

I fall in.

I am lost… I am hopeless.

It isn’t my fault.

It takes forever to find a way out.

 

Chapter Two

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.

 

Chapter Three

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk

I see it is 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

 

Chapter Four

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk

I walk around it.

 

Chapter Five

I walk down another street.
