Avoidance Behavior -a Meme

There's a lot on my mind -generally circling around the theme of the stories we tell about ourselves to ourselves and to each other. But mostly to ourselves. So, what does it take to strengthen the "Andrea is competent and strong" story, which is at the very least one of the true stories about me? And how do we get the "Andrea is weak and incompetent" story to concede defeat and go bother someone else?

Heck if I know. So, rather than think about it, I'm eating pizza, drinking a glass of wine, and contemplating the following meme. Jump right on in.
