Most people never share their stories, even though they have had amazing experiences and have a lot to share. There are many reasons why people don’t share their experiences, but the main one is usually fear. People are afraid of what other people will think of them, or they’re afraid of being judged.
But sharing your experiences can be incredibly rewarding, both for the person telling the story and for the person listening to it. Think of all the YouTubers and motivational speakers who are having massive success simply because they are willing to share their experiences.
If you are ready to share your stories, these affirmations can help you let go of the fear and embrace the benefits that come from sharing your experiences.
