your stories of fulfillment

Who you are is strengthened when you unearth and convey the times you were deeply fulfilled.
Don’t spend your valuable time with friends dismantling yourselves. Instead tell of the acts that fulfilled you, the personal small tales that reaffirm your unique value in the world.

The trick is to recall that odd moment that thrilled only you, not others.
