We each have our own stories of worth and value and long lists of shoulds and have-tos. We all have been hurt deeply, experienced debilitating losses, and had moments or days or months when we simply no longer want to go on. The details, the specifics, of each of our stories, our experiences are different, and yet the themes are universal and shared.
We are each connected by our stories, and in sharing our stories, in looking at them, exploring them, questioning them, we begin to transform them, to change the story for our Self and for the next generation. When we share our stories we find our people, our tribe. We learn we are not alone. Not by a long shot. And as we each share a bit more of our story, a bit more of who we are, how we think, what we are made of we encourage others to do the same, we remind others they are not alone. We find ourselves, our Selfs, interconnected, a web of experience and feeling and being and becoming. Yes, look at your stories, know them. And share them so others can know you. xoxo
