Everyone has a history. Your memories, your judgment of your memories and your judgment of yourself in light of these memories have contributed to who you are and how you are. Looking at your history is empowering in that the more conscious you become of it, the more able you become to re-frame painful aspects of your history that may be stopping you from showing up in your best self. Revealing your history is not about blaming others or seeing oneself as a victim. To reveal is to become more intimate with oneself. The closer you get to your true experience, the stronger you become in your sense of self. Who would be courageous and share a painful historical event that contributed to who you are today?
