“There’s been so much information about how when we tell our story we become the heroine of it, we become empowered.. we have agency just in the retelling of it in the writing of it. And from my life I completely believe that is true (…) Psychologically it’s so important for our brains to know how we are telling the story and to take control of the story for ourselves”.
