This post carries on a theme I began yesterday and is inspired by the stories of my fertility clients…. Some stories we may never want to share, and that feels right. But others can feel like an unbearable burden to carry on our own.
Sharing our story with a trusted other can bring huge unburdening and the opportunity to look at our life afresh and with new perspective.
When we look at our story through another’s eyes we are often able to see ourselves in a kinder light. Struggles through adversity so familiar to us that we now take for granted, can look like the heroic acts of endurance that they actually are, when seen through an observer’s eyes.
The thought of sharing our story can feel daunting, even self-indulgent but it can actually be a gift not only to ourselves but others too. The process can give us clarity and courage and allow us to see ourselves within the world. Sharing with others can also give them hope, comfort and the inspiration to keep going.
