We all have a story to tell. Whether or not WE think it is interesting or worth telling, does not matter. Someone may benefit from your story no matter what it is.
I have quite a story myself, but I'm not quite ready to tell it. I have shared parts of it with some of you, and I'm sure you know that is why I read and LOVE Violence UnSilenced.
Even now, in my current situation, (although it is nothing like what you will read over at Violence UnSilenced) sometimes all I want is for someone to listen to me. I feel alone alot of the time, even though I know I'm not, but it's sad that sometimes when I need someone, they're not paying attention to know that I need some attention. I just need a minute for someone to listen.
I always try to be there for anyone who needs me, although recently it's become increasingly more difficult to be there for anyone, as I'm consumed with my own issues. I try to remind myself that we all need someone, and I could be that someone that day that they needed.
We all need someone to take time for us and make us feel special, even if just for fifteen minutes.
If you are familiar with domestic violence and violence towards women, and you haven't read Violence UnSilenced yet, please take a moment to check it out. You'll be inspired just like me!
