Wading into discomfort and vulnerability

“People who wade into discomfort and vulnerability and tell the truth about their stories are the real badasses”   Brene Brown ~ Rising Strong

I will not stop telling my story.  I have been shamed for telling my story because people who have hurt me do not want my story to affect how they may be perceived.   But here is the thing.  It is my story.  You have the right to tell your story too and I am not going to try to stop you from telling it.  I am telling my story from my experience in the best way I can.  I had hidden some of my posts because to be honest I was trying to please someone else.  I have to be true to myself.  This makes me uncomfortable because I do not like to hurt anyone, even those who have hurt me.  If you do not like what I am writing…don’t read it.  If you don’t want to know what I think stay off my blog and go live your own life.  I am back to writing and I intend to tell that story….from beginning to end without leaving out the middle.  As Rene Brown says in her book Rising Strong so many times we hear the beginning where the person is face down in dirt and then the end where they rise back up but what about the middle part?  The middle part is the struggle that is sometimes hard to look at.  By telling the whole story others can see that they are not alone.  I intend to tell the whole story and to make all those posts I hid public again.   I am back on my feet and I am able to look back over the last couple of years with different eyes now.  I take responsibility for my life and I will share that story with you now.  So stay tuned….
