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, Michelle Chalfant shares where these stories come from, why it’s so important to understand how they impact us, and offers insight to help us face our stories and let them go!
