Why do we share stories?

Have you ever had a really exciting moment in your life, and you want to tell it to everyone? We always have different stories and experiences that we want to share. Sometimes they are happy experiences, and sometimes sad ones. But we will always have stories to tell.

I think we all agree that each experience and story will say something about us. The way you react to each experience, will tell you something about yourself, your emotions, your likes and dislikes.

We share stories to tell people about ourselves. If you hear a person's story, you might be able to make a connection with them, or you might not. But either way, you will have a little more knowledge of the person.

Sometimes we share stories to express ourselves and our feelings. When you had a bad day, and you tell someone about it, doesn't it feel good to have let it out? Sometimes we share stories for advice and opinions. We want to hear what other people think of the problem, if you're right or wrong. We want to see a different perspective.

Sometimes we share stories to teach lessons. We tell stories so others can learn from other's mistakes. Sometimes people tell a story to get a message across.

Some people write auto-biographies about their whole life. Why? Maybe they want to share their experiences and stories because they just had the most interesting ones. They had a life full of ups and downs, and they want to share it to the whole world!

Maybe they feel writing is the best way to get their feelings out. They want to express themselves in their own way, see what other people say. They might want feedback from other people, a different perspective.

Now I have to find out what the best way is to share my stories! Any ideas?

  1. Great post! I agree with the bit that people share their feelings on a bad day to let it all out to someone especially.

  2. I really agree, especially when you said "We share stories to tell people about ourselves. If you hear a person's story, you might be able to make a connection with them, or you might not." I would never have thought about it that way. really good post. (;
