“If you knew everyone’s story, you would love them. You can’t really hate anyone if you know everything that happened to them between their birth and now; why they became the way they became; why they have walls up or down. If you truly know someone, you’d get it.”-Emma Stone
I have been saying for a long time now that my life would make a New York Times Best Seller. I’ve known for a long time, that I have lived the kind of horrors and beauty that people like to read about and I have postponed writing my life down for a long time for fear of judgement and for fear of the people that might be hurt by my truths coming to light. This blog post is a place holder. This is me writing down my commitment to myself to put my story on paper (or in digital format).
This post will serve as a chronological table of contents of sorts, it will be a timeline and as I write down the various chapters of my life and post them online, I will post them in here and fill in the gaps as I go along. I cannot write my story in a linear fashion, but I will try and organize it that way after the fact as much as I can.
“You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.”― Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life
