We’re wired for stories; they’re how we make sense of the world and our place in it.
When we’re stuck it’s often because we’re called to take painful action but we keep resisting, trying to find an easier way out.
We resist because of the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves, which can range from ‘I have to be strong’ to ‘I’m not enough’ and beyond. Whether we’re conscious of them or not, these beliefs can colour how we feel about ourselves, the world, and others.
Unchecked, we’re left with our emotions and actions becoming reactions to “the story I’m making up”; the meaning we give to what’s happening or being said.
Let’s bring a new perspective to our stories, and discover that we have more in common than divides us through sharing them.
