Are you telling your story?Sep 02, 2023
We are all attached to our stories.
They have shaped us and our perception of the world.
And they have the power to transform us - the storytellers - and others - the listeners.
But most people do not know WHY they are telling their story.
And so, they are stuck in a perpetual cycle of suffering as they tell and retell their stories.
That's because knowing why you are telling the story is the power of your story.
A great parable that illustrates the power of telling one's story is the "Two Wolves." It's a Native American parable that goes like this:
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.
"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego."
He continued, "The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."
This parable highlights the importance of the stories we tell ourselves and how they shape our thoughts, emotions, and actions. It teaches us that by choosing to focus on and nurture the positive aspects of our story, we can lead a more fulfilling and empowered life.
Do you know why you are telling your stories? Are you feeding the positive aspects of your stories? Are you transforming the narrative to empower yourself and others?
