When someone asks you to tell your story, do you respond, “Who me?”
Many of my clients were once convinced that they had nothing to offer. Their Soul Suckers would tell them that their story isn’t interesting and that no one wants to hear what they have to say. They had a “Who am I” Soul Sucker holding them back.
“We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? … As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
― Marianne Williamson
Here’s the thing about Soul Suckers. If they’re talking, there’s something going on there.
Soul Suckers don’t like change, vulnerability or transformation of any kind. So, they protect us against those things at all costs. The more they fight to hold us back, the more vibrance and creativity is waiting to be unleashed.
Every person who’s ever told me that their story is “boring” or said “no one cares” actually had an interesting story to tell. In fact, some of the most interesting, moving stories are buried underneath those “Below the Belt Bastard” Soul Suckers.
Your Voice Matters. Your Story Matters.
Are you still thinking that I must be talking to someone else? That I couldn’t possibly mean you?
I am talking to you. Your Voice Matters. Your Story Matters.
Yes, I really mean you.
If, by telling your story, you can help process your own life while helping someone else on their journey through theirs, isn’t that worth it?
With passion & love,
