Stories help us filter our experiences and make sense of life.
Sharing stories can foster a deeper understanding of ourselves and a true connection with others.
Depending on the stories in your personal rotation, you might feel stuck: cut off from meaning, empowerment, or authentic connection with others.
That sounds isolating and craptastic to me.
But, know this:
You are the Hero and the Author of your own life story. You can choose how to present your story to yourself, and the world.
Every story has:
- a hero/ine (that’s you).
- what the hero/ine wants.
- a setting (where things take place).
- supporting characters (friends, family, strangers, pets, Yoda).
- an antagonist (the overwhelming obstacle, the villain).
- theme, or how the story is framed.
