There’s something about sharing your story. I’ve had the opportunity to share my story in numerous ways as a blogger, volunteer and charity professional, and each experience is different.
Considering each audience will be different and the style of communication will vary, the main objective of sharing your story still has the same ideal outcome; inspiration.
Writing this post specifically for the blogging community, I wanted to focus on recent events. You’ll know by now by life isn’t exactly great right now (You can read about it here), but experiencing the heartache I have a story to tell.
Personal stories resonate more with my following and despite it being hard to type the words, I know it has its benefits.
Life throws it’s crap at you from all directions and when you succeed in overpowering the negative and turning it into positives, all you want to do is shout it from the rooftops; well I do anyway.
If you’re able to do it, so can someone else and I struggle re-living the past, but I’m not living it. I know, confusing, right?
There’s always someone out there living what you’ve been through who needs help, but might not reach out and ask for it, and this is where I find blogging to be useful.
The community is made up of a lot of introverted individuals, whom might not be comfortable in talking about personal situations, and this can resonate in sharing our story.
I don’t have to share my stories about bullying, cancer and other down moments, but I do and I LOVE IT! A single blog post can help someone through tough times and you might be able to help them in ways you wouldn’t necessarily know about.
I think this blog post has just been my thoughts being typed in a document, but I know somewhere someone will read this and will think about sharing their story.
Never be afraid of stepping outside of your comfort zone, when you have the opportunity to help others.
