Description

Change the story. Change your life. From imagined catastrophes to play-by-play interpretations of others' behavior, we are expert storytellers, quick to fill in the blanks. Unfortunately, all too often our behavior is determined by baseless suspicions, which trigger needless pain. Real life passes us by as we fall for powerful fantasies of our own creation.

It doesn't have to be this way. In The Stories We Tell Ourselves, author and therapist Scott Gornto shows us how to break the cycle of false assumptions that lead to unnecessary anxiety. By taking control of our reactions to the people around us, we can learn how to be truly present in our lives as we nurture the relationships that matter most.

Based on more than 20 years of research and experience, Gornto demonstrates how family narratives, media, and past experiences shape compelling storylines that blind us to reality and wreak havoc on our relationships. Through persuasive examples, he models fresh, life-enhancing approaches to engaging with friends, business associates, and loved ones alike. Don't waste your life making up stories. The Stories We Tell Ourselves is a wake-up call and a compassionate, accessible guide to transforming your relationships - and your life.

Extremely helpful with specific techniques provided

While I admitted don’t read a lot of self-help books, for the ones I have used for my anxiety - I find a lot of them are not very useful or prescriptive in how they give their advice.

This book is quite different - in a good way! Most of the exercises and advice given in this book are very pragmatic and provide real, tangible techniques to help me get over anxious thoughts or moments of insecurity and frustration.

My only criticism is that as a non-religious person I find some of the Christian references in this book a little bit awkward because it doesn’t align with my belief system. Having said that, the religious references to be minor, subtle, infrequent and not super disruptive for the most part to the narrative of the advice and the stories in the book.

Overall, I highly recommend it to people like myself who suffer from depression, anxiety and have strong insecurities about their relationships. This book has really helped me a lot!

Great book!

Very insightful with direction. I've done many years of therapy and wish I would've had this book sooner. Will most likely listen again. Worth every minute!

Good content, poor writing

I had big trouble paying attention while listening to this one. I only made it an hour or two into the book, at 2x speed.

The content seems good and relevant, but there's something about the way it's written, that made it feel like a haphazard blizzard of thoughts and separate sentences.

At first, I couldn't put my finger on it, but then realized it's due to the author's writing style: it feels as if each sentence is a tweet, and the book is made up of chapters, each one featuring tweets read in succession, organized by hash-tags.

So it feels like going to Twitter, putting in f.e. #relationships and reading aloud, down the list of related, yet disconnected tweets. On-topic, off-putting after a minute or two.

In other words: the book lacks structure, and a proper flow. Too many periods/dots/full stops, too few commas.
