Sherry — there were so many parts to this comment I thought “me too!”
Don’t sell yourself short — your words can and do have a great impact on people as well.
I love this comment and I really enjoyed the self-awareness you had towards the end. We seem to be cut from the same cloth.
I’m still embarrassed by my story. I still have a bit of anxiety over it. But, comments like these have helped me realize that it was indeed the right thing to write about and it’s a story worth trying to help other people with.
I know exactly what you mean about not changing things and wondering if you would’ve been better off without them. It’s an interesting concept that I also have to shake out of sometimes.
Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my story.
