It can be a very scary thing to be vulnerable and share your story. Not knowing what others will say or think. Not knowing who might get hurt in the process of you speaking your truth.
It's so much easier to hide behind the mask and pretend that you are fine while deep down it eats you away inside. Hiding in the dark from the shame and guilt you carry. Often times without even knowing it.
The pain masks itself in so many ways such as anger, illness, depression, addiction, violence, promiscuity, desperation, suicide. Anything really that may give you that temporary promise of escape from the truth and the pain. So you carry on, suffering in silence, hiding deep down inside and destroying yourself so that you don't have to face the pain, guilt, shame, feelings that need to be felt.
What you don't realize is that there is someone out there that is waiting to hear your story. There is someone out there that is in the midst of the darkness, suffering in silence, thinking that their is no hope for them. Thinking they are all alone.
Your story is powerful. Your story can and will not only help you finally heal, but it can and will change and save yours and someone else's life. Stop hiding in the darkness and let your light shine for exactly what it is... Courage, Hope, Power, Strength, True Light.... #SavedByGrace #FullerLife #shareyourstory #yourstoryispowerful #metoo #nowwhat #timetoheal #courage #hope #survivor #nolongeravictim #stophiding #bevulnerable
