I created this new guided poetry journal, titled Harness the Power of Your #MeToo Story, as a tool to help women (and men) overcome the shame and fear that often follow sexual assault. As long as your story is a secret, it has the power to mire you in feelings of worthlessness and shame.
My experience over the last 20 years, as I’ve told my story to more and more people, is this: when your story is no longer a secret it will not have the power to embroil you in shame and despair. Your story—your truth—told has the power instead to instill in you a sense of grace, compassion, and fearlessness you cannot grasp in this moment.
My writing mentor Mary DeMuth often says “An untold story never heals.” I believe that is true. An untold story of trauma and pain speaks into the darkness of the soul untruth about that story. Telling your story brings it into the light where the lies you’ve come to believe can be exposed. Mary expounds on this idea in her new book “Into the Light – Bible Study Book: A Biblical Approach to Healing from the Past.”
