Make Sense, Shape Your Stories
Knowing Who You Are
The way we understand ourselves, both as a species and as individuals, is to contemplate how we have responded to the experiences of our lives.
In the immediate wake of events, we process, resolve and form our 'stories', we make our meaning, then we tuck the stories to bed, and shift who we are based on the shape they make in our minds. Rarely do we remember, or reflect on their 'truthfulness'.
But unless we reflect, from the distance of time, unless we look with fresh eyes, on how we allowed ourselves to be shaped by events, we risk being fixed in who we are and what life means. And we risk telling shallow, fixed stories.
