Another benefit of stories especially telling and hearing stories from others is that stories connect us with each other. Certainly our lives are a story and we can learn a lot about ourselves, and others, by ‘telling and listening” to stories. By listening to stories, we are providing a safe place for work colleagues, friends and family to be who they really are! By telling our stories, we provide people an opportunity to get to know ourselves better.
Who in your life can you ask to “tell you their story?” There are hundreds of people in rest homes with real-life stories who just need someone to listen to them. Who can you tell your story to? There are people who desire an opportunity to get new glimpses into your own life.
Each of us has a story. Each of us is a story. Who will you share yours with?
