How do our stories shape us and how do we shape them?
In this episode entitled The Stories We Tell in Order to Survive, Amisha meets author and journalist Tyler Wetherall. Together she and Amisha take a deep dive into our understanding of truth, lies, secrets, and stories.
By the age of 9 Tyler had lived in 13 houses in 5 countries and she believed this to be normal. Soon after she was to receive a shock revelation that would shake the foundations of her life as she knew it and her sense of personal identity. She then carried this secret close to her chest until finally writing her memoir. Tyler shares with us the story of her childhood and the circumstances and decisions which led to her unusual upbringing. But more than anything this episode is about the power we have to reconcile our past, and change our future.
“I genuinely believe it is almost impossible to choose one version of the truth, one version of a story that stands alone... I like to think of everyone's different stories all together like threads in a plait, you chose which thread to follow when you tell a story.” ~ Tyler Wetherall
