AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN 5 SHORT CHAPTERS




Autobiography in 5 Short Chapters © by Portia Nelson


Chapter I

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 me forever to find a way out.


Chapter II

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 am in the same place but, it isn't my fault. It still takes a long time to get out.


Chapter III

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 IV

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


Chapter V

I walk down another street.
