If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” – Rudyard Kipling
I love hearing people’s stories, but I can always tell when people are leaving out the messy part. I want to hear people’s stories and everything about them. Including the messy, the nitty-gritty, the everything.
Let other’s know they aren’t alone, life is a journey but it doesn’t have to be a lonely one. So many people have the same stories but everyone needs to share their stories so people can relate.
Be unapologetic about the messy times in your life, the mistakes you made, and the hurt you have felt. This isn’t an isolated incident, everyone experiences life, and sharing these moments is beautiful.
Having a perfect life isn’t needed. Having a messy life is normal. You have the power over your own story, you’re the author of your own story. You hold the pen to write this story. Tell your story and be proud of it, all of it.
