It’s hard to tell your story and know that someone won’t want to walk away.
How could someone possibly understand what your journey has been like?
When you’re being contemplative, you recognize there are others with your same problems.
If you think a while, you’re likely to recall someone who was telling their story and parts of it rang true for you.
What did you feel in that moment? The range of emotions could be from ‘understood’ to ‘hope’; from feeling less alone to wanting to share your story, too.
