Tell Your Story

by Tracey Metzger

Learning to embrace our story, even the dark parts, is essential to becoming whole. I spent a lot of time segmenting my life.  Each time I would get through a bout with depression I wanted to box it up, hide it away and pretend it never happened.

Shame wants us to ignore, hide and disown the hard parts.

When we embrace our whole story and talk about it, we find freedom. You don’t have to tell everyone but tell someone. Sharing your story may end up helping them but it will definitely help you.  Shame loves secrecy. Freedom loves transparency.
