CHANGING THE NARRATIVE - #WritingPrompt Wednesday

Have you ever had someone tell you the same story over and over again because they're not conscious of the fact they’ve already told it to you? It's as if their story is on auto-play for anyone who will listen.

We all know those people. Perhaps you're one of them, or have been one of them. I was certainly one of them for a long period of my life.

Pain needs an outlet. It needs a listener, and the way we most commonly share our pain is through our language, and our 'story'.

When you talk about why you are the way you are, or why your life is the way it is, you're essentially telling a story about yourself.
