First, you have to decide what it means to tell your story. This answer won’t be the same for everyone. For some, telling their story might involve disclosing to a loved one. For others, it could mean publishing a book. And still for others, sharing their story could be more personal. It may involve keeping journal entries tucked safely away.Try to avoid sharing your story in a way that makes you uncomfortable. Don’t rush yourself to communicate more than you’re ready to say.Whether you choose to lock your stories away or distribute them to the world, do so with self-compassion. The Latin root for passion is suffering. When a person is compassionate, they suffer with another person. When you are self-compassionate, you suffer with yourself. You show yourself empathy. Try to put yourself in your own shoes. How were you feeling then and how can you kindly respond to yourself now.
