Stories, and the language inside them, are incredibly powerful. They are written about us by friends, family, educators, bosses, friends, and lovers, for our entire lives. It is our choice, whether or not we believe them, and try to live up to them.
I have been helping people for 10 years to stop apologizing for stories never meant for them, and teaching them how to write their own. I would be honored to guide you in writing yours.
