Challenging Your Narrative, with Ryan Stevenson (Enneagram 3 or 4?) [S02-027]
In order to make sense or find meaning in our lives in early childhood, we develop narratives that sort of explain our life experiences. We often choose specific incidents that we string together into the plot we now live. But, have you ever stopped to ask yourself if the story you are living is true?
In today’s episode with singer/songwriter Ryan Stevenson, we really tackle the concept of owning your own narrative and challenge whether the interpretations of your own story are in fact true. And if they’re not, the Enneagram can help provide you with some clarity about the story you’re living in right now.
We hope this episode encourages you to reflect on your own story. To get started, simply ask yourself:
Are my interpretations about who I am and the way the world is true?
Is my story helping me simply “survive” life rather than to live it fully?
And remember, you have the freedom and the power to change your story. You can revise your interpretations and see your true story through a new lens.
