You are the story you chose to tell
We are a bundle of stories
At external level, we are
influenced by cultural myths and
stories
Our	stories	are	variation	of	fundamental	archetypes.
Myths provide role models
• Human beings are the
only specie born too
soon: situation of
dependency
• Myths are like marsupial
pouch
• If you destroy the myths,
you destroy the culture
(cf buffalos for Native
Americans)
We are conditioned by media
messages
We are educated by stories and
fairy tales

You are the story you chose to tell

  • 2. We are a bundle of stories
  • 3. At external level, we are influenced by cultural myths and stories Our stories are variation of fundamental archetypes.
  • 4. Myths provide role models • Human beings are the only specie born too soon: situation of dependency • Myths are like marsupial pouch • If you destroy the myths, you destroy the culture (cf buffalos for Native Americans)
  • 5. We are conditioned by media messages
  • 6. We are educated by stories and fairy tales
  • 7. Stories run through our families
  • 8. • Pick 3 tales you remember from your childhood • Pick 3 stories from your family you have heard many times • What are their core message? • Draw your positive genealogy tree with the superpowers of your antecedents
  • 9. At internal level, we are a sum of life stories and events
  • 10. And we are trying to make sense of them and connect the dots backwards
  • 11. And that is very specific to human kind • We are the only beings to perceive our time on earth as a story. • We constantly interpret what we see and create stories out of the reality. • We crave for meaning. • Suicide rates actually plummets in time of war since conflict is a way of finding meaning.
  • 12. Your brain is a novelist • It orders, classifies, selects, excludes, forgets events and stories.
  • 13. Your identity is a fiction • Who are you? Your job? Your family? Your name? Your community?
  • 14. We create stories to include and to exclude • To federate people towards a goal, around values, against an enemy. • To build nations and communities. • School manuals from 70 countries have been compared on the story of the ”discovery” of America. None tells the same story.
  • 15. And bad narratives are lethal
  • 16. Novels civilize the world • Listening to the narrative from the other point of view develops your tolerance, your narrative empathy.
  • 17. Each narrative is the product of a choice. Conscious or not.
  • 18. • Which negative narratives have you heard about your community and have hurt you? • When was the last time you listened to a story which challenged your stereotypes? • Identity list map
  • 19. Because we live in a world full of fear
  • 20. Fear is collective • The original fear of separation from our home, family, love partner, group.
  • 21. And fear is a very useful tool to control people
  • 22. Our entire culture, our states and nations have originated from war
  • 27. Yet, most of the time, we are driven by fears • Fear of the other • Fear of rejection • Fear of suffering • Fear of shame • Fear of loss
  • 28. • What is your deepest fear?
  • 29. And especially the fear of vulnerability • “I want to experience your vulnerability but I don’t want to be vulnerable. • Courage in you sounds like inadequacy in me. • I am drawn to your vulnerability but repelled by mine. • Vulnerability is the last thing I want to see in me but the first thing I look for in you.”
  • 31. And the fear makes us develop armors… • Imagining the worst • Being perfect and pleasing at all cost • Numbing with work, alcohol, sleeping pills,… • Disconnexion, isolation... • Blaming others • Cynicism or agressivity
  • 32. • I think midlife is when the universe gently places her hands upon your shoulders, pulls you close, and whispers in your ear: “I’m not screwing around. It’s time.All of this pretending and performing – these coping mechanisms that you’ve developed to protect yourself from feeling inadequate and getting hurt – has to go.” • Your armor is preventing you from growing into your gifts. I understand that you needed these protections when you were small. I understand that you believed your armor could help you secure all of the things you needed to feel worthy of love and belonging, but you’re still searching and you’re more lost than ever. • Time is growing short. There are unexplored adventures ahead of you. You can’t live the rest of your life worried about what other people think. You were born worthy of love and belonging. Courage and daring are coursing through you. You were made to live and love with your whole heart. It’s time to show up and be seen. ~ Brené Brown
  • 33. • Which is your armor? • When you experience shame, what is your reaction? – Move away (withdraw, hide, silence), – Toward (please), – Against (Aggressive, shame others). • When was the last time you used your armor?
  • 34. Fear traps us into negative narratives • You are flawed. • You are bad. • You are not worthy of love and belonging
  • 35. And women are even more targeted by negative narratives You are fat You can’t please your partner You are a bad mother You are not enough Women don’t know how to drive Women lie Women change opinion all the time Women are emotional
  • 36. These constant messages have a huge impact in terms of self-esteem
  • 38. BIG GIRL, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL 90%OF ALL WOMEN WANT TO CHANGE AT LEAST ONE ASPECT OF THEIR PHYSICAL APPERANCE 81% of ten year old girls are afraid of being fat. And only 2% actually think they are beautiful. 02 SHIFTBALANCE.ORG || ACCELERATING GENDER BALANCE Handcrafted by rodrigoseoane.com Funny Weight Loss Special Thanks to funnyweightloss.com Source:  Women Don’t Ask / Oxfam / EU
