Stories have an impact on our mental well-being.
Throughout the years, humans have always shared stories whether it be about something that has happened to you during your day, or sharing information to help someone’s health.
I enjoy people’s stories.
Where are you from?
What’s your favorite thing in your life right now?
What has happened to you to form you into the person that I’m having this conversation with right now?
Everyone you see has a story. We never really know what someone is currently going through.
That’s what makes us unique. We might be able to relate to something, but grasping the full effect that something has on someone’s psyche is something we will never actually understand.
Isn’t that beautiful?
When we make friends or start a new relationship, our first conversations are spent learning about the other person and giving lessons on ourselves. You’re intrigued with this person. You want to know everything about this person. You want to know why they move a certain way or what they want for the future.
You want to make their stories your own.
You want to make new stories with this them.
Inside jokes start to form. When you attend a family function, you tell stories to your family about this person and stories with you and this person.
The human race thrives on knowledge. We’re always searching for more information for us to absorb. The thing that no one realizes is that this search doesn’t just include math or literature or medicine. We learn about other people, our favorite actors, the band we’re currently listening to , or the person living next door.
We grow with the stories of those surrounding us.
It also helps us to tell our stories. We get to know ourselves a little bit better.
Take the time to learn about someone you interact with.
