Stories can be amazing, truth-telling, gut-wrenching, real, connecting, sad, inspiring, funny, relatable, revealing, raw, vulnerable, strong.
Stories can also be fake, manipulative, cold, controlling, deceptive.
What stories do we tell about our selves, to others and to ourself? What stories do we hear from or about others? Are they amazing and real? Or are they deceptive and fake?
What are we basing our whole belief system on, how are we judging others? Are the stories we hear real?
We can only know if we open our hearts and listen. Our hearts know the real story if we listen closely.
