One of the single most important things that I have learned since writing my very first blog is that by telling my story, I am helping other people who have been or currently are in the same circumstances that I have experienced. I have also learned that once other people read or heard your story and know that others have been down the same road and survived, they know that they are not alone and that there are other people out there who are willing to provide support for them. The amazing thing that you will also find is that you are also helping yourself by sharing your story because you are releasing some, if not all, of the pent up emotions that are associated with that time and space in your life.
Everyone has a story. It doesn’t matter whether it is something that occurred in your childhood or just happened last week. You have succeeded in overcoming something in your life and we want to share that here with those who may be dealing with the same thing at this very moment. Each success that you have had just shows you the true inner strength that you possess and by sharing those successes with others, it will assist others in learning from your experiences so that they can succeed, too.
To that end, I would appreciate it if you would provide your stories to me by clicking on the special icon provided below. Your stories will be shared without providing any information about you personally unless you notify me at the end of your story that you would like to make yourself available to anyone who may have questions or would like to speak with you directly.
We are all in this life together and we can make a real difference by being willing to help each other. It doesn’t cost you a dime to help and you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your home. But what you are contributing to help others is invaluable and appreciated so much more than you will ever know. And just think how you would feel if by telling your own story, you helped at least one other person. There is nothing more valuable in this world that you could ever receive.
