What’s Your Who?

I’m a firm believer in sharing your story with people in the right setting. Will everyone want to hear your story? Probably not.
Can you tell everyone your story? Nope, but for those who do, you never know how you can connect with that person and build valuable relationships.
In that moment of sharing your story and being open and vulnerable,  you are able to connect with others in ways you will never know if you don’t dig deeper and tell the experiences that shaped you to be who you are today.

I recently attended an event and we did an experience in which we had 2 in a half minutes to share our “who” you are with one person without talking about work.  So, the first go around I’ll admit I stayed surface level and discussed my blog, school,  tutoring, etc… nothing deep.
So then, our speaker who was amazing by the way, made us dig deeper and examine who we are and share some not so pleasant experiences that are a part of our story.
By the time we ended, I knew so much more about the person sitting next to me, such as we both experienced the loss of a parent around the same age. Had I stayed surface level,  I would have never learned this information and been able to value her experiences to understand how she perceives or reacts to something differently today.

Have you shared your story with someone today? What have you experienced that you overcame that can help someone else today?

Revelations 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

    I like that phrase “go deeper”. It challenges us to be courageous, bold, and transparent.
