I love telling stories. One of my favorite things to do is to swap stories with loved ones over a good meal, laughing and enjoying one another’s company. Such joy!
We all tell stories. Sometimes we tell them to others, but mostly we tell them to ourselves. Some of them are full of love and light and laughter. More are shriveled and scary and mean. Many of the stories we tell ourselves are our way to make sense of what’s happening – to us, to our loved ones, in the world. Eventually, we tell these stories to ourselves so many times that they become our truth,
whether they’re actually true or not.
