An Autobiography in Five Short Paragraphs by Portia Nelson


1.   I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in. I am lost. I am helpless. It isn’t my fault. It takes
forever to find a way out.

2. I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it. I fall in. 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.

3. I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it 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.

4. I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

5. I walk down a different street.

Are you ready to walk down a different street?
