I have a deep love for reading what people have experienced and trying to learn from their specific situation. I’d rather listen to people who’ve lived insane and uniquely bizarre lives casually share stories from their past from a legal point of view.
Individuals have survived outright foolish circumstances, situations, and encounters with the legal system. There are not many things I truly appreciate more than paying attention to the people who have driven unimaginably intriguing lives, recounting their story and experience.
This explains why I’ve always been drawn to reading legal questions and answers. Especially ones written by those who have lived litigious, chaotic and surreal lives.
Why do you need a story? We all recount tales about ourselves. Stories characterize us. To understand somebody well is to know their story—the encounters that have molded them, the preliminaries and defining moments that have defined them. At some point, we need somebody to understand us. We share accounts of our childhoods, our families, our school years, our first loves, the improvement of our political perspectives, etc.
By “story” we don’t signify “something made up to make a terrible circumstance look great.” Rather, we’re discussing accounts that are profoundly evident thus captivating that audience members feel they have a stake in our life experience. The Legist platform is filled with this dynamic, without a story there is no platform to deliver professional connection to relate to the individual.
Recounting a story that occurred in our personal lives might be terrifying. “Will I think back one day and think this was the best thing that consistently occurred?” we ask ourselves. “Or on the other hand will I understand that this was the start of something positive in my life, that it was a breeze from here on out?” We desperately try to find common ground with those around us by sharing these vulnerable moments of our lives.
I’m 24 and looking back I think I’ve gotten through my life without any real scary moments. Well, there probably have been some, but none serious enough for me to be able to remember now.
Anyway, have you had any moments where you’ve been terrified or creeped out or been in any sketchy situations? If so then I want to hear your story. Please post it on Legist
