7: Fighting Fables: Facing our Stories & Assumptions

This week on the show, we’re talking about stories. 

An example: You’re on the highway. Someone races up next to you and cuts into your lane. You’re surprised and scared for an instant, which leads to frustration — and maybe anger. That person is rude, oblivious, stupid, probably didn’t see you because they don’t care about others in their lives. … and so on, and so on. This is your story. A story you’ve made up about a person you have never met, based only on a split second fear reaction. 

These are the stories we tell ourselves to help us rationalize our reality. This week on the show, I share where these stories come from, why it’s so important to understand how they impact us, and offer a bit of insight that will help us face our stories and let them go!
