We are all storytellers living the story we tell. We tell our story mostly to our self - an internal narrative casting our experiences in an endlessly looping documentary. If we dare to share our story with others, it is usually carefully curated to present what we wish them to think of us.
It is more challenging to be truly authentic with our story. We often allow our story to be dictated by others - following the easy path of filling the mold cast for us by parents, teachers, partners and politicians.
Better to seek out the truth of our own story. Find what really lies within, live it and bravely project it outward.
That is our real story.
