Have You Told Your Story?

Emotional, autobiographical storytelling can be a path to truly owning your story. Sherry Hamby, Ph.D. The Web of Violence

Today I’m having lunch with, Sarah, a woman I interviewed for my book. She’s a friend of a friend and I have not yet met her face to face. One of the great joys of writing my book has been speaking with amazing, brave women like Sarah. These women were willing to share their difficult stories as a means of helping others.

Not only does sharing your story make a difference to others, it helps you find your voice and make sense of the events of your life. Sharing also helps you express your values, reinforce hope, and take steps to move forward in your adventure of living.

Affirmation: I will tell my story.

Coaching questions: Do you have an untold story you’d like or need to tell? Consider sharing it with an understanding person in your life. How might this telling help you move forward with your life?
