I found this years ago and saved it and while sorting through “stuff” yesterday, I came across this and once again realized how telling, insightful and truthful it really is.  So, here’s it is, an autobiography written by Portia Nelson.

There’s A Hole In The Street

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 forever to find a way out.

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 this same place.

                        But, it isn’t my fault.

It still takes a long time to get out. 

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……but,

                        my eyes are open.

                        I know where I am.

It’s my fault.

I get out immediately. 

IV.

I walk down the same street.

      There is a hole in the sidewalk.

      I walk around it. 

V.

I walk down another street.
