There is a way for us to change the future for the better. We can change the future by changing the story we tell ourselves about the future that we are going to live in. If we want to imagine a better future and then build it then we need to change the story we are telling ourselves about the future we want to live in. This doesn’t mean we shouldn’t talk about futures we want to avoid. Sometimes these concerns are more important than identifying the future we want to live in. But, regardless, we need to change the narrative and change how we have conversations about those narratives.
