I BELIEVE STORIES SAVE LIVES. Stories create opportunities for individual and collective transformation. Stories push back hard against discrimination and replace ideology with empathy. One individual’s willingness to be vulnerable can open up a whole world for countless people who are otherwise convinced they are completely alone in their desperation and fear.
I know now that when I resist a connected life, I falter. When I allow shame to keep me from asking for help, I fall deeper into shame. When I choose connection, I create a space for healing: not only my own, but for others.
I’m grateful for this opportunity to connect with the Carolina Partners community! I see this endeavor as an chance to spark dialogue and learn from each other. I look forward to connecting with you!
