Your Story Deserves To Be Heard

Another face, another person, another life. Busy streets, crowded rooms, cities that never sleep.

No one knows my story at a first glance, and no one will know yours. But I promise, I will always try to see the good in you and understand how you got to where you are now.

This is your story, one I could never understand because I’ve never lived it. I want to hear your feelings, your troubles and tribulations, your deepest and darkest fears, all the things in life that make you insecure and scared to face the world sometimes. Be the one others can trust unconditionally, the person that others know will not turn on them because they’ve made mistakes, some that alter your life’s path forever. We have all made mistakes. At the core of who we are, is the essence of being human—imperfect, yet always striving to be better, to do better.

This is part of my story; I want to be the person that you can tell your story to, where you know you will never be judged no matter how difficult it might be to accept your past. I promise to listen with an open mind and to be understanding. No matter what you have said or done, you are worthy and beautiful. Everything you feel is valid, even the negative emotions. Don’t you know you’re a masterpiece, constantly evolving, changing, becoming more and more like who you’re meant to truly be?

Our experiences are just another name for our mistakes and our successes. But our experiences are life-changing, and they set the precedent for our beliefs and our thoughts. Behind your face and your voice is the amalgamation of a million memories and those complex emotions, and for whatever it’s worth, your story deserves to be heard.
