Stories matter because they draw us in and invoke emotions. Our hearts break for what someone went through. We laugh at an absurd decision and the consequences. We shake our heads in disgust. We feel a surge of envy or jealousy. We wish we could have been an eyewitness.
Stories break through our outer crust and touch our emotions.
Stories matter because we relate to stories. They provide us with common ground. They connect us.
Stories take people from thinking they have nothing in common to realizing they have plenty to share.
Stories matter because they help answer questions. When did that happen? Why did they move? Where were you when that took place? How old were they? Is that why? How did you react? How did you get through that? What happened next?
Stories connect us through providing common ground. Stories help answer questions of when, where, why, what, and how.
