Identity. Turns out how we think about ourselves has a lot to do with the story you tell about yourself. What’s your life story? How do you tell it?
How much do you edit your life story? Is it okay to leave that bit out? Does your story go from bad to good? Or do you only see things getting worse…?
Is it a story of your own making, or of other things just happening to you? If you believe you’re unable to influence your life story, you may not try and turn things around when things aren’t easy breezy.
In the end, what do you have that you didn’t receive? Mark and Andy talk about story guilt, self-efficacy, and being part of a larger, more profound story. And that one’s all about redemption.
