We all have a story to tell.
Our life is a story.
We live our story daily, but we don’t always share our story with others.
I have begun to share a part of my story with others. It hasn’t been easy, but so far it has been worth it. At first I worried by how some would respond, that they would be upset or angry, or that they wouldn’t understand. I did not want to loose their friendships. You don’t know how someone will react until you give them the chance to. I have been surprised by the conversations I have begun to have with people, with friends. Each person chooses how they hear your story and they are entitled to their own thoughts and feelings.
Since sharing my story, I have felt more like the person I am truly am.
I feel freer, happier and more supported than I have in the past.
I feel empowered. Being honest with yourself is so important.
It feels as if the truth can really set you free.
This is just the beginning.
This story is just a small part of my larger life story.
I hope to share with many people – I am slowly getting there.
