Telling one's story is one of the most powerful medicines there is. Stories bridge differences, diffuse conflict, nurture trust, reduce stress and ... they heal.
Maya Angelou once said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” Finding and creating venues for our stories is perhaps more important at this time in our history than at any other. Social media, texts and Twitter are no match for one's own story. Stories connect us to one another. They remind us that what we have in common is so much more than how we differ.
“Stories are the glue that hold us together and right now we need a lot of ‘holding together.’ If I can contribute to that, I’d be thrilled.”
