Autobiography in Five Short Chapters By Portia Nelson

* Chapter One 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.

* Chapter Two┬áI walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend that 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.

* Chapter Three 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 is my fault. I get out immediately.

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

* Chapter Five I walk down another street.
