Benefits to Sharing Your Story
It is not just the telling or writing it down, but knowing that what you write will be read by others and the hope that by sharing in a public way, someone else might be inspired or helped by your story. It is also a great way to encourage others to talk about what they're experiencing.
Here are some of the benefits that seem most important:
- Realizing that sharing your story can help others.
- Finding your voice.
- Re-affirming your values.
- Finding peace, finding hope.
