We each have a personal history story that influences everything from our wellbeing to our beliefs about who we are to our perception of the world, whether we are conscious of it or not. Stories are an important part of who we are, and yet when we are overly attached to old narratives, it becomes difficult to step beyond our own limitations.
The stories we tell about ourselves and our experiences matter. They shape our identity, impact our choices and behaviors and help us create meaning out of our lives. Our stories don’t just help us construct our identities, our stories are our identities.
