Because it changed me
I don't know how to fully verbalize the shift that occurred in me, to me, whatever, something shifted - but, the short version is I was heard.
The validation of my words, my story, was so profound and it continues, three years later.
I heard over and over again that I do have a story to tell. That what I have to share is important and that it matters.
So do you!
