Ever had someone assume something about you that was based on what they "heard"? Or realized you believed in something that wasn't true about yourself or someone else, based on how you were "raised"? Explore this concept with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's TED Talk "The Danger of a Single Story", and a personal story from @dramatherapistnina while you're at it. How will you be diversifying your own narratives? Whether it's you who struggles with these moments as a trigger or someone you know - we can all use tools to recondition cultural beliefs that aren't realistic or helpful to our personal experience as a human being. It starts with you, so have a journal on hand or a good friend to dialogue with what comes up for you in this episode. And if you can't play with this today? That's okay too. Stay curious. We'll see you later, or in the next episode friend. 🌿
