We live in a world built on and by stories. Yet, too often, these stories are mistaken for the beginning and end of reality. At 3 Bird View, we challenge the blind acceptance of “what is”, and go in search of whose story are we accepting. We’re all telling and accepting or ignoring the stories upon which we base our life. The beginning of writing our personal story depends on how well we see the stories that have shaped us and the world we share. Ok, the philosophy lesson is over.
Stories are also fun, so let’s play!

The Broken Stories Blog, by our Managing Editor, J. Komp, is a breakdown of the fictional and factual stories that shape us and our world. Written to be mostly short reads, these deeply questioning musings tackle everything from current events to mental health, family relationships, books, movies and whatever else interests her. Expect to find her latest observations on ADHD next to story-fixes for popular movies that missed the mark or shook up a world view.
All stories are a partnership between the teller and the listener. They are opportunities to build trust and curiosity or fortify the status quo. At the end of the day, each of us chooses what we’ll adopt as part of our personal narrative, and what we’ll dismiss as fiction. The goal of everything at 3 Bird View is to challenge the way it’s always been and introduce the kind of thinking that creates new possibilities for all of us to flourish within. And we’re genuinely grateful to have you along for the journey.
It’s only together that we tell stories that change our world for the better.
