This podcast aims to make you know less.. Yes, less. I believe it is our perilous grip on what we “think” we know that causes most of our anxieties. Mental Health conversations are becoming mainstream and I am here to stoke your curiosity with interviews and stories surrounding this area of life. Join me on solo and interview episodes as I aim to crack the code on the how and why we think and feel the way that we do. stevenfage.com/podcast

PTSD and Post Traumatic Growth - Taryn GreeneJourney Through The Artist's Way - Arman AssadiThe Stories We Tell Ourselves - Dawn Fraser
From Movies, Commercials, Your Family and Friends; they're all telling you stories about themselves to either convince you of an idea or to control your world. We're also doing this to ourselves, all, the, time. The stories we were told from an early age turn into the stories we continue to tell ourselves, sometimes our entire lives. We unpack the idea of story, how and why we tell ourselves the stories we do, and what we can do to tell ourselves better, more empowering stories. Join me and Dawn Fraser as we travel down this rabbit hole, you may find yourself on the other side. In this episode, we cover: Establishing your “life's work”, logging entries of life events, memories, and feelingsHow lucky we are to have social media to use as an archive for looking back on our lives from an introspective perspectiveAcknowledging what you are good at, what you are ok at, and what you are not so good at, make the stories based on reality not on what's been given (or told to you)The 5 Love Languages and how they relate to our state of mind when we're telling ourselves how our stories are goingHow to recognize the signs when things are off, and you keep telling yourself the same negative things, over and overHow to navigate media consumption and all the stories being fed to us onlineBeing mindful of the source of stories and wether it is a dialogue or one-way communicationChange is inevitable, growth is optionalGratituding (its a new word)Defining your micro-stories in place of relying on one big macro storyLearning to build in flexibility and detours into your vision/story to prevent discouragement that leads to quittingKnowing the difference between the FACTS and the TRUTHLearning to tell stories from our scars, and not our wounds…How studying story and telling stories can teach you to tap into yours and make better connections between memories and events that have happened in your life Full show notes and video: https://stevenfage.com/podcast/episode/storytelling-and-the-stories-we-tell-ourselves/
