Owning Our Story

Owning Our Story

If have sufficient courage, we can own our story. Doing so will mean coming to terms with our faults, flaws, character defects, shortcomings, mistakes, missteps, and the lies we’ve told to ourselves and others. This is not a journey for the faint of heart, but it is certainly a noble journey.

Owning our story also gives us the freedom to live without fear of what others think. We will walk in the soul-warming light of the truth, filled with the breath of self-acceptance. We will no longer need to worry about our past catching up with us because we will understand what our responsibilities are regarding our past. We will accept responsibility for our behavior (and our misbehavior.) We will pay what ransom we must in order to rescue ourselves from shame’s hellish grip.

That, brave friends, is what living can be. That is who we can be. We deserve to be free, as does anyone who is brave enough to live their story.

“Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do.” – Brene Brown http://ow.ly/i/AsdK8
