We all have a story to tell. It could be a series of short stories or a great epic saga. The fact is that we all have a history that we have lived and should share. You should do so.
Your stories live within you. You are the only one who knows and can tell them. If you share them with others, then everyone can laugh, cry, and learn together. If you hold them in, only you know, only you have learned, and if anyone else brings them to light, they are told in another narrative. Your stories belong to you, and you should express them.
When we share our information, our knowledge base grows exponentially. When we fail to share, learning is stunted, and everyone learns at a much lower rate of trial and error. This is easily seen in both individuals and cultural groups which close themselves off from the main-stream society.
Look at your story, those things that you have done. Granted, some are personal, private, or embarrassing. You do not have to tell too much information, share your best. People will appreciate it, and so will you.
Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again soon.
