Not everybody is wired to stand up on stage and speak or entertain, and not everybody is wired to write a book. But we all have experiences and life lessons to share. Your published story might inspire someone to take a giant leap of faith. It might help another to heal. It could be that written legacy that so many of us wish our parents, our grandparents, and our great-grandparents (and beyond) had left behind for us to better understand them or remember them by. Our stories are more powerful than we can imagine, and every single one of them deserves to see the light of day.
I published my own story in 2015 after eight years of hiding it at the back of a cupboard, too terrified to share it with the world, afraid of what the world might think, that nobody would ever read it, that I would be persecuted for writing it. But none of that mattered. It was begging to be released from its prison of silence. So I set a goal, and I stuck to it. A year of Sundays, I said. And that's what I did. Every Sunday, without fail, I sat down at the keyboard and bled until it was done. And now my story out there. I have never looked back. It was one of the scariest but most liberating things I have ever done. But I did it.
Perhaps it's time for you to do the same, and perhaps I'm the person to help you do it.
