Storytelling is a powerful method of communication. It offers people the opportunity to connect to, relate to, or see the world from someone else’s perspective. Stories provoke our emotions. They can make us laugh, cry, feel afraid, get angry, think, and dream. Following a character on a journey of exploration, empathizing with the character’s problem, yearning for a solution, and reveling in the outcome helps to shape our mental state.
