I feel fortunate to have created a platform where I can use my experiences to talk about my story and that of my experiences. Our stories are our stories, the way we see our lives and that of our experiences.
Unfortunately, as it can sometimes go, other people’s recollections of our story may not agree with ours, but that shouldn’t matter because our story is our story. If someone else were to tell their version of our story, it wouldn’t be told in the way we saw it. It’s our story, it can only be told our way. Our Story is for us to tell through our own experiences.
To tell any story is to tell others how we see it, not how others see it for us, or would like that story to be. There would be many things in ‘My Story’ I would like to have changed and been different, but sadly that will never be. I can’t change My Story, but I can write about my experiences and slowly piece those experiences together and I feel I am achieving that.
Whatever our story, we must continue to live and speak our own truth, however hard it may be for others to hear. If the shoe were on the other foot they would want to do the same things for themselves.
