"The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon."
Hello, Brave One.
The world will always make you feel like your stories don't really matter, or that you must constantly measure your worthiness.
Tell your stories anyway.
The people in your life won't understand why you need to "rehash" what happened and dig up old memories that might embarrass them.
There are moments you will feel unqualified, ridiculous, and messy. Most of the time you will have no idea what you're doing.
Show up and write anyway.
Your first draft will be horrendous.
Finish it anyway.
I promise if you stick with it, you will surprise yourself.
Let's do this.
