“The reason for evil in the world is that people are not able to tell their stories.”
– Carl Jung
“I feel it is the duty of one who goes his own way to inform society of what he finds on his voyage of discovery.” – Carl Jung
Stories are the way we make sense of the world. Whether it’s the story of Psyche, the woman who became a goddess, or your own story – which could be just as crazy. There are stories we tell others and stories we tell ourselves. Every story can be told through multiple perspectives, and how we tell these stories changes how we think about ourselves and the world.
Our lives are little more than stories. Are you mortal or a goddess? Is your story tragic or comedic? Are you a hero or a victim? Have you been transformed in some way?
Narrative therapy can be especially effective for people who have PTSD or C-PTSD. Writing your story can be the first step in changing the ending.
Maybe you have an experience you think would help others. Maybe you’re still processing an experience that happened recently or years ago, and you want to share it. Maybe you have a new way to tell your story, or maybe it’s something you can’t share with your family or friends.
So, we invite you to share your story. You can find more details and submit your story below, and we’ll post it here and share it with our community.
Entries can range from 300-3000 words. Stories should be kept anonymous, so only provide a first name or pseudonym, however you’re free to share it with others. If you would like to submit a story or article with your name (for instance if you’re a life coach), contact us by email. If the story is for some reason inappropriate for this site, we reserve the right to not publish it. We’ll let you know when it’s published (or if we need clarification before publishing it) if you provide your email. Otherwise email is optional.
