No one can write your story as you can. Never let anyone tell you otherwise.
You do not have to write your entire life story but remember everyone has a story worth sharing and we all learn from one another's stories.
Telling stories can even bring back great memories. For the elderly, the chance to tell their stories is known to improve cognition, lessen depression and even improve functioning and self-esteem. Let's not lose the valuable connection to our histories and the stories from those important people in our lives. Encourage seniors to tell their life stories so they can be passed down through the generations.
