One of the most common things I hear from women when I ask if they’d like to share their story on M2M is, “but I don’t have an exciting story. Who would want to hear about my life?”
I always respond that their story doesn’t need to be a show-stopper; it just has to be genuine. When we open our hearts, and let people in to see the authentic, vulnerable side of where we’ve been, who we are now, and what we dream for the future, a connection is established. Whether or not we have things in common is irrelevant. It’s the exposure of our true selves that begins to build a connection with other women. From there camaraderie is formed, and before you know it, friendship.
As women, as HUMANS, we are wired for relationships; we crave intimacy that comes from knowing other people on a deeper level, and we need community with those who listen and understand. It doesn’t matter if it’s through a computer screen, on the playground, or with your lifelong BFF; community is as vital as air.
We NEED your story. Whether it’s a page-turner, or just average, there is a woman out there who must hear it. We need to know what makes you who you are, we want to understand your journey, and it’s important to be there with you as you travel into the next season of life. That is true community, and it is created by sharing our stories with each other.
So join me and the hundreds of other women in the M2M family, and send me your story. You don’t even have to be an awesome writer. I can help you with that. Let me show you how your life can become a source of encouragement and hope for someone else!
