Tell the story of the mountains you climbed
Tell the story of the mountains you climbed. Your words could become a page in someone else's survival guide. I know you have felt so alone at times, but I promise you, you are not the only one who has felt that way. You are not the only one who pretended to be okay, or the one who almost gave up in the middle of the day on a Monday...you are not the only one. You are not the only one. There is someone out there who is going through the same thing you went through a year ago. There is someone who is looking to where you are as a sign of hope that they too, can make it that far. You may not be where you want to be, but please do not let that stop you from telling your story. You have something to say that has to ability to pave the way for someone who longs to be where you are today. And that person might be a stranger on the internet that you have never met before. It might your little brother, a younger cousin, or your best friend. Never underestimate the power of your story. Never discredit the strength and the wisdom you have gathered as a result of what you have been through. May you never feel that your story isn't special enough. May you never think that you cannot share your story because you're still dealing with uncertainty. Your story still matters, even in this chapter. Your story is worth sharing. Your voice is worth being heard. And you never, ever know who you might be able to help.
