Stories Will Save Us

“Forge meaning; build identity”. This is a mantra that was coined by writer Andrew Solomon. In it, he laid the foundation for a life devoted to re-evaluating our stories—our circumstances and our traumas—and creating meaning so that our stories focus on our healing and empowerment. We may do so by documenting our lives with technology (like the figures on the top); read/write about hardships; consume art that empowers and provokes thought; and lastly, simply speak to each other. When we share our stories with each other, we create community and compassion— which is what we need to prevail.
