Brief Benefits of Storytelling: Connection

This is the first of a new blog feature “Brief Benefits of Storytelling”. Come back in the weeks to come to read more bite-sized posts about why storytelling is impactful to your life!

We connect with each other through expressing how we feel about things. How many social bonds have you formed based on a mutual interest or disinterest in something? Sharing personal stories is a way in which we are allowed to more easily express these feelings and emotions. When we share stories, it is expected that we talk about how life events impacted us emotionally. Sharing personal experiences builds social bonds. Storytelling opens a door for others to reach out to us and understand our world.
