“When you stand and share your story in an empowering way, your story will heal you and your story will heal somebody else.” - Iyanla Vanzant
Welcome to the Healing Through Storytelling blog directory. Here you will find links to personal blogs in which people share their own stories of living with life's challenges: medical issues, mental health, addiction and issues of trauma, such as rape or domestic violence.
Crafting our narratives and sharing our stories is healing. Reading someone else's story is healing. Personal stories help bridge isolation, create a sense of community and light a path in the darkness.
The idea for the directory came out of this post, which also includes links to relevant articles and studies on the topic of healing through storytelling.
When you visit these blogs, please do so in a spirit of support and respect. It takes great courage to share intimate stories with others.
If you'd like to suggest a blog for inclusion in the directory, send me a link (you can read this post for submission guidelines). For questions or concerns, contact me healing @ kristinbrumm.com.
