Single story

Recently a friend shared this lovely TED talk. It got me to question so many stories I told myself. I had started writing a book on my journey a few months ago. And approximately 5000 words down, I quit. I realised that the story that was coming through was one-sided. I didn’t buy it myself that this is the journey of my life. Through this video I can now place this feeling. I am glad I didn’t persist. It came from a point of view that this happened to me. I am rewiring my own story these days in my mind with another point of view – this happened for me. It is a gentle way of dropping the need for stories.

Sometimes we are too intent looking at one side, not knowing we are the ones casting a shadow on the other side.

I hope this talk inspires you and makes you gently question your favorite single stories.
