The Power of Our Stories with Amy Oestreicher
Everyone has a story. After Amy’s was featured on TODAY with Kathie Lee and Hoda, she was inspired to bring hers to the NYC stage in 2012. Ever since, it's been Amy's hope to bring out the stories that unite us all.
Through telling stories, we feel connection, and similarity, yet can also define and create our stories through our own uniqueness. No one else can write the story of our life - its what makes us unique, yet we all can relate to certain themes and feelings. When we tell our story, we are asking for attention from those we care about or wish to affect.
Telling our stories helps us process what happens in our lives. Through our shared experience, we can heal. It's not the details that matter - suffering is relative. By sharing our stories, we can connect with others who feel the same way. We suddenly feel less alone, in our ever-unfolding narrative.
