Stories let us share information in a way that creates an emotional connection.
They help us to understand that information and each other, and it makes the information memorable.
Because stories create an emotional connection, we can gain a deeper understanding of other people’s experiences.
That not only helps us to understand their lives but it allows us to take the lessons they have learned and apply it to our own.
Stories of other people’s experiences, real or fictional, help us to see that everyone has feelings, fear and hopes — and that everyone is trying to do their best to make their way in the world.
