This is a concept I picked up at Smart Recovery:

There are facts, and there are stories we tell about facts

Fact: He was late.

Story: He was late because he doesn’t care about being home in time for dinner, or about my feelings !!

Facts create feelings only when you turn them into a story. Stories create feelings, and feelings drive actions and determine how we feel about life, ourselves, and others.
