Mental Health and Personal Narratives

A funny thing happens with therapy; It’s not funny “Ha ha,” but funny in the way watching Buster Keaton get punched in the face is funny. Once you start revisiting specific chapters of your life as part of a process meant to empower you with often radically different coping mechanisms, you also realize how much of your biography is fiction. We are the ghostwriters of our autobiography—the often unreliable narrators who are interested in protecting a sort of internalized version of ourselves.

For this slightly behind-schedule fourth episode, we dive into those stories we tell about ourselves, find some interesting similarities, and explore how we both coped with our unconventional childhoods. We hope you’ll join us in this conversation.
