Living your story

Earlier today I shared this picture on Facebook:

I think this message is important. I think it's valuable.

I think it's really, really hard.

I believe this though. I believe that you can heal yourself from your past. I believe that you can help someone else be okay with their present. I believe that just because something is one way right this second it doesn't mean it has to be that way forever. I believe that dreams are the biggest, most amazing things we can have.

That's all for now.

Okay, except for this:

My story was difficult for me to write, for a lot of reasons. It was also important for me to write, for other reasons...ones that are probably more complicated. 

Everybody has a story. Those stories should be shared. Even if it hurts. Even if you can't read it out loud without crying. Even if it's hard. So very, very hard.

It's still my story.

There is power in sharing your story. There is peace.

I believe that too.

I'm glad you're still writing and publishing! I have a couple of my own stories I hope I can share one day but am still not ready for them t be associated with my name in a public way. Thank you for your strength and big heart!
