Refining Our Stories on the Page as a Path to Recovery: The healing power of writing
Thanks for this wonderful post. #2 is important! I am going back and adding more of the beauty and humor into with my work. I’ve also learned recently that I have physical limits. My body is not a machine, and I can’t keep working and looking at painful parts of my memoir in progress for long periods of time. I had a stress induced illness arrive, and this has taught me that it takes a lot of self-care sometimes to revise these stories. I put extra stress on myself to say something of importance for all survivors, but now I am realizing that telling my story in the most honest and heartfelt way might be the best I can do in few chapters. You give great advice, and this is an inspired post! Gratitude is something we should all practice more often.
