I am so intrigued by what happens when I tell my story. When I open up with people and tell them what has happened in my life. Where I have been. Who I have been. What I have done wrong and what I have done right.
My story can range. It can range from the last decade to the last few months. My story could be all 29 years. My story could be this last week. When I sit down and talk to someone and I tell them my story.
I have been making bonds.
I have made bonds intentionally and unintentionally. I have made bonds to people I never expected to make bonds to. They are interested in my health and I am interested in their health. We are connected to one another. This last week I had the opportunity to sit down and talk to someone who I had told my story to. I did not realize how impactful it was to tell my story to him.
When we sat down, he told me his story.
His story hurts right now. Right now I get to walk through his story with him. Right now I get to be a part of his story.
I never would have had this opportunity if I did not tell him my story.
When will you tell someone your story?
