You know you are not your thoughts, you are not your emotions,  neither are you your job title. But you are also not your experience. You are the participant in the experience but are not the experience. Just as the character is in the story but not the story.

You must break free from identification of the experience or the story in order to feel peace. The moment you think you are the story you get pulled into the drama and so this is when the pain, worry and anxiety set in.

Breaking free from the experience means nothing defines how you feel in any moment. Whether you are currently unwell,  struggling financially,  have just gone through a break up,  or lost someone. You are NOT the experience.
Remove yourself from it and remember who you really you.

Do not be defined by the experience.  You decide how you wish to feel. No person, no circumstance, no experience has this power. Only you do.
