According to a life theory by a psychologist and researcher Dan McAdams, we each have a life story. This life story is our perspective of the events that detail our experiences, hopes, and dreams that make up our life. Our life stories will have areas of happiness, sadness, hope, and fear.
We share bits of our life stories every day … whether it be describing the events of a stressful day with a friend or remembering a recent vacation. McAdams, believed life stories are crucial to our interaction and serve as a window into the rest of our life.
