“We get so used to the stories we tell about ourselves that sometimes we need to find ourselves in the stories of others.”
American novelist and essayist Leslie Jamison
We all tell stories about what’s happening in our lives. Some stories are about ourselves or about other people. We construct our stories based on our experiences, our perspectives on the world around us, and our interpretation of facts as we see them.
The more interesting stories, though, might just be those that others tell about us.
