Your Story is a Key for Others

In a recent presentation to a group of young people, I chose to be vulnerable & share a personal story that was painful to me.

I recently received a note from the mother of one of the young people in that room. Her son connected with the story, and it helped him know he wasn’t alone. She said he’s been telling the story to others, and, in the process, making it his own. The story has become a place of strength & freedom for him.

Vulnerability is hard. But it’s how we connect with each other. Authenticity allows us to know & inspire each other real ways.

Don’t be afraid to share your journey with someone else. Your story is the key that can unlock someone else’s prison.
