There is a power in stories. I enjoy them, watch adults and children fixed to a good story in a book or at the movies. Each of us has a story, which consists of events and how these events impacted our emotions and feelings. But how these stories inform our identity (who we are), and how we project these stories towards others also requires an interpretation on our behalf. Have you noticed how some people have had similar events in their life yet take very different interpretations of these? Bob Thune has a very interesting (short) video on this here.
