It is startling to realize that no one on earth has your story — only you. The specific combination of elements that make up your story are unique to you. Not only does no living person have your story but no one who has ever lived had your story, either.
No one who ever lives in the future will have it. It’s an incredibly cool story that no one else will ever experience. It’s yours alone!
We sometimes feel isolated in our uniqueness. It’s no wonder that people want to fit in with a crowd. They want to appear acceptable to other people who might judge them.
Slowly we realize that it’s the uniqueness of our stories that binds us together. It’s hard to convey human experience. It’s not just hard, it’s nearly impossible. Maybe that’s why somebody invented art, music, dance and theater. We are all stuck in our own brains and bodies.
Your story is powerful. There is no reason to feel embarrassed about any part of it. The more you claim your story and feel its power in your life, the stronger you will become.
Tell us one tiny piece of your story, nothing confidential or very personal please, but an anecdote or bit of trivia you want to share. Who doesn’t love stories?
