Sometimes it’s hard to tell your story.
(But when you do, you’ll find you’re not as alone as you think.)
Will some laugh? Possibly. You have a bigger purpose than to let this stop you.
(Some people laugh out of nervousness but secretly they will admire your courage to speak.)
Will some gossip? Most likely. It’s sad but true.
(This makes me think of the story in the Bible about “casting pearls before swine.”)
Will some heal? ABSOLUTELY. We are here to help each other with life. And life is messy.
(NOBODY can do this life on his own – no matter how big he brags about himself.)
Do not be afraid to tell your story when you feel led to because people need YOU and your very experiences so that they can begin to heal from stuff in their own lives. Your story matters. You have a testimony to share.
You can do this. I believe in you.
My prayers are for you.
