The #1 Obstacle that Keeps People from Telling Their Story (and how to fix it!) EP: 174

podcast Dec 20, 2023

Storytelling is a fundamental aspect of our human experience. In recognizing and embracing our individual stories, we not only celebrate the diversity of human existence but also forge authentic connections with others. We discover a shared humanity that transcends barriers, fostering a sense of community and reinforcing the belief that, indeed, we all have stories worth telling.

A few episodes back, I shared with you the challenges women face when sharing their story. Today, we’ll dive deeper into one of these challenges and how we can move forward even when we face this obstacle.

Join me today as I share with you:

  • The number one obstacle that prevents us from sharing our stories
  • The concept of micro stories and how these hold significance when shared authentically
  • What survivor's perspective is and the impact of a survivor’s story to those who hear it
  • The importance of understanding one's audience
  • That regardless of the perceived size or complexity of the story, it’s a powerful tool for fostering connection, empathy, and understanding


Everyone has a story worth telling. And when you share yours, you contribute to a shared tapestry of human connection and understanding. Just remember that when you share your story, you shine a light. And in remembering that, you’ll find your motivation and inspiration to begin your journey, regardless of the obstacles you may face along the way.
