It’s a problem of symbolism. Our words symbolize reality. They aren’t reality. Our stories symbolize aspects of who we are. They aren’t who we are, *but we act like they are*. That’s the mistake.

Humans tell stories. That’s normal. Identifying with those stories (or rejecting them, which is the flip side) is, in the end, crippling. It’s not stories that are the culprit, but identification, grasping those stories to give one’s life meaning.
