You Are Not A Victim For Sharing Your Story

When you strip away the fears, most humans have an inspiring story to share – they are often their own worst critic.

You don’t have to have been through major life-changing trauma to have something powerful to share.

You don’t have to be fully out of whatever struggle you find yourself in to be able to inspire others – in fact, I personally find the very vulnerable story of “being in it” some of the best impactful messages to share. If you can stop another person feeling alone in the world you have given them a huge gift.

What you think is not important and dismiss could be another person’s gold. Please remember that. It could be exactly what they need to hear, in exactly the way that you express it that unlocks their journey to healing and freedom.

I always say “who are you not to share your story?”


You can read my full story here, from when I was ten years old and what happened to me. I was admitted to a psychiatric unit at fifteen and continued to suffer throughout my adult life with feelings of self-hatred, fear, darkness and not knowing who I was. I used addictions to help me to cope on the outside when the inside was chaotic. I finally found my healing and had a burning desire to share this with the universe to give love, hope and inspiration to others in pain.

Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass

Anton Chekhov
