I’m Sure There’s A Story

Have you ever heard this expression before? It’s a catchy one with an interesting lesson.
In brief, people utter this expression when they have zero interest in what is going on in the life of another person.

For example, I begin to talk about myself and try and share something about my life. Then someone in earshot looks at me and sees my lips moving and simultaneously says “I’m sure there’s a story”. In other words, that person is saying they know I am talking about myself and don’t care to hear anything about my life.

The lesson here is that you don’t need to say “I’m sure there’s a story” as you hear someone talking about their self. And you don’t need to isolate or shun that person because they are talking about their self. If you have the energy and can muster the interest try and listen to what is going on in the life of that person.

My life is important and so is my life story. So is yours.

It’d be great to hear from you,
