Telling your truth is a game-changer. Never underestimate the power of your experience and how sharing your story can not only be a cathartic process for you, it can change someone else’s life for the better.
There are people looking for your words, a shared experience, a chance to know that they’re not alone.
In writing your story, in your own words and in your own way, you have complete control over what you share. You don’t have to have any answers, you don’t have to offer advice, you are simply sharing your experience and that’s the most powerful story of all.
Have you experienced the immense relief of someone calmly saying, ‘I understand what you’re going through’ and those words actually being true? In that moment, you’re not looking for advice. You’re simply grateful that you don’t have to explain anything, you don’t have to pretend and you can relax, safe in the knowledge that someone ‘gets you’.
You can write the book that you needed to read. You can write the book that you need to read now. You can write it in whatever way makes sense to you, because that is the only way to share your words.
If you are reading this and you can feel a surge of excitement and fear in equal measure, you can see yourself holding your book in your hands but you have no idea how to bridge the gap between the story in your head and the printed version, I can help.
Don’t know where to start? Don’t like writing? Don’t have time? That’s what I’m here for!
