Everyone has a story, with both highs and lows, both challenges and gifts and with infinite opportunities to grow. As in any story, the setting and other characters all influence you and what happens, including institutional systems, social constructs and family dynamics. The roles we take on and the patterns we develop to get through one chapter may not always be helpful to us in later ones. I believe there is power and healing in telling your story and that with guidance, you can own it, rewrite aspects of it, and choose what role you play. I believe we are all capable of changing our lives and that no change is insignificant.
