Releasing Traps

Note, this exercise may require some variation to complete. Use your personal creativity to reach for the concept of the exercise and then interpret it accordingly.

Think back to a past “trap” you created for yourself, something that when it had you ensnared kept you from doing something you either loved doing then or love doing now (or both). As a kindness to yourself, review the situation, including what may have caused the trap and how you dismantled it. As a related kindness and if feasible, do the thing the trap kept you from doing.

After doing this, write your story and then edit it to a point where it is succinct, no more than three short paragraphs.

What wisdom have you gained from this story and from this experience?

Summarize this wisdom in a sentence and add it to the bottom of your story.
