Ep. 123: Social Self-Care (3/4)
Yeah, it seems weird to say storytelling is part of self-care, much less social self-care — but hear us out. Haley and I talk about why infusing our lives with good stories makes us better people, and therefore, better members of society.
Stories inform our moral imagination, a place to hang wisdom and complicated ideas, and teach us what collectively matters to us: we’re designed to learn, love, and carry stories with us.
