About this Episode

Today’s topic gets personal: We’re talking about why we need other people to speak into our stories. What value to they bring? What kind of people are we looking for—and how do we know when we find them?

** Discussion Questions**

  1. We talked about three things that outside people offer us as we explore our stories: Gift of presence, Outside perspective, and Validation of your experience. Which of these three do you most need?
  2. What input would be most helpful for you in this season: People who knew you then? Or people who know you now?
  3. Who are the wise people—with your best interest in mind—that you can ask to help you “see your own face”?
  4. From StratOp’s Four Helpful Lists (Right, Wrong, Missing, Confused), which category do you tend to resist? Which category excites you the most? Why?
