Stories | Questions | How can telling your story be useful?

Hardened attitudes and fixed perspectives shift when we hear the stories of others.

Sharing your story can be a powerful part of the recovery process as it helps those who have suffered overcome the voicelessness of victimhood. It also allows those who have harmed others to make reparation and model a process of change.

Life becomes more meaningful when your story is able to help others with their own unresolved pain.
