What is the primitive driving force within us that wants to be heard?
Having our story told with accuracy is simply invaluable.
I imagine it being a victorious moment of freedom.
But would it be better to step back and allow the stories to circulate, for someone else to speak for you?
Or is it simply unjust to leave the rumors be?
Would your story inspire?
Would your story change the course of events set forth?
Would the accuracy expose the lies?
Would the truth shatter whatever it touches?
Simply finding meaning out of precarious situations life has thrown at you has value.
Wear your scars proudly and choose to voice your truth, no matter how scary it might be.
You never know who may be watching from a distance.
