As we go about our lives, we tell ourselves a lot of stories about the kind of person we are and the life we lead. And once we believe the stories we tell ourselves (as well as the ones we tell the world about who we are), we want to keep perpetuating them. Today, we find ourselves participating in more stories than we ever have before, which is making us all anxious as hell.
There is nothing inherently wrong with stories. Storytelling is what makes us human. Setting aside the stories we tell ourselves for just one paragraph, as a culture, we’re surrounded by a ton of stories that we collectively believe to be true.
