"We learn to appreciate stories as children. The child's mind is quick and powerful, but uncontrolled and unsophisticated. Stories appeal to it, and adults rapidly discovered that a story can put an idea into a child's head like nothing else can.
Stories are easy to remember, both for teller and listener. As that child grows to adulthood, the love of stories remains. An adult has to be able to tell stories to the next generation of children, or the culture does not propagate. And an adult needs to be able to tell stories to other adults, such as their boss or their mate, because stories have a clarity of structure that does not exist in the messiness of the real world."
– Terry Pratchett, The Science of Discworld
Strange as it may seem, "insecurity" is the result of a misunderstanding; the result of the mistaken belief that our feelings can come from somewhere other than our thinking. This mistaken belief is so compelling because we've had it taught and reinforced ever since we were children (see the Terry Pratchett quote above – it's one of my favourites).
