Telling Personal Stories

Personal stories are important to me, as the stories of myself and others have changed my life. I have been able to process a lot of my own bullshit through writing down my thoughts into a creative nonfiction essay. Stories can truly change lives, they changed mine. Stories can change our beliefs when facts can’t, because there are connections in stories that are not there with facts. Facts are of course immensely important, but it’s stories that change our outlook.
