We are storytellers.
Our brains parse impressions, form opinions, fill in the gaps with presumptions, and create products sold to us as data without ever proving them as facts.
There is an insatiable energy behind this storymaking – a driving need for certainty, justification, and self-preservation.
Stories hold sway, and the judgments we create based on our stories determine whether we condemn or forgive; fear or love.
Stories can hold us hostage or set us free; they can split or suture.
What would happen if we changed the narrative of the stories to which we cling?
