Why tell stories?

stories

“If you want to know me, then you must know my story, for my story defines who I am. And if I want to know myself, to gain insight into the meaning of my own life, then I, too, must come to know my own story. I must come to see in all its particulars the narrative of the self –the personal myth-  that I have tacitly, even unconsciously, composed over the course of my years. It is a story I continue to review, and tell to myself (and sometimes to others) as I go on living.”

McAdams D.P. (1993) The Stories We Live By: Personal Myths and the Making of the Self. New York: Guilford Press
