As humans, we communicate through stories, so you are a natural born storyteller, and with a little practice you can write your stories for yourself.


Anthropologist Mary Catherine Bateson says we are all engaged in an “act of creation…which is the composition of our lives” and storytelling is how we make sense of that act. In doing so we create a coherent narrative, which is a key source of meaning.

Writing is a way of examining memories and sorting through them. We all have internalized stories we create, about who we are, how we got the way we are.

Putting these memories on paper may help you understand the past and also help you find what fuels your sense of purpose and meaning.

Looking at your stories, the good and the bad, and reflecting on what you learned, how you grew, how you persisted through difficulty, has been linked by psychologists to a greater sense of well-being. Writing your stories, even the ones about difficult situations, helps you create appreciate the benefits of the path you’ve taken.


If you haven’t written before (or much or recently), you may hesitate to start. You may worry that you don’t know what to do or that your story won’t be interesting or good enough. Remember, we are all storytellers, and we can all learn to write our story.

The good news is you don’t need to share your writing, you can write just for you. That takes a lot of pressure off.
