The goal is not to fool oneself into thinking that awful things are genuinely excellent. It is instead to discover meaning in the sequence of events. It is to acknowledge that everything is continually changing. You will go from victory to heartache to boredom and back again throughout your life, perhaps all in the span of a single day. But why worry about it? The next day will be another chance for new beginnings.
By telling one's story, you share important parts of yourself with others. You give them insights into your experiences that only you can provide. You open up opportunities for discussion and even collaboration between people who might never have met had it not been for this shared history. And most importantly, you make sense of your past by placing it in a broader context: history teaches us that nothing lasts forever- not even the longest lived species on earth- humans- so we must learn how to survive our own mortality.
We need stories because life isn't like the movies where all problems disappear when you turn the page or close your eyes at night. Life isn't black or white, good or bad; it's made up of many shades of gray. We ask ourselves "What would I do if I were put on trial for my actions?" and then we try to act accordingly when faced with similar circumstances in the future. Stories help us understand how other people reacted when they were facing similar choices that we're now facing. They help us make better decisions because we know what others have done when faced with similar situations.

It is our responsibility to continually coming up with fresh methods to emphasize the vital truths and teachings they convey. It is our responsibility to observe and report. Stories provide us with a frame of reference. They reveal both the good and the negative in a person or circumstance. They help us to relate to and learn from the characters' struggles and tragedies. Finally, they help us to live by example - and there are many lessons we can learn from great stories.
The art of storytelling has been used for thousands of years by many cultures around the world to entertain and educate their communities. Modern technology has only strengthened this tradition: movie theaters, television, radio all have the power to reach large audiences with their unique ability to tell stories that have the potential to move them emotionally. And even more importantly, these tools can also be used to spread messages about politics, business, and society itself. Over the radio, a story can be told about what's going on in other parts of the world. On TV, episodes of a series can carry messages about different issues through their narrative arcs. In movies, stories can be told about topics such as war, poverty, discrimination, and human dignity with enough skill and sensitivity that they can have an impact on the audience members themselves.
We need stories to make sense of our lives and our place in the world.
