Why You’re Being Selfish By Not Sharing Your Story


We all have a story to share.

Your story IS worth sharing.

Sharing a weakness, and how you deal with it, can help someone.

Sharing a story about how you overcame a difficult time in your life, can help someone currently going through a similar struggle.

Sharing a story about how you beat an addiction, can give someone the inspiration and/or strength they need.

Your words matter.

Your story matters.

Your words, at the right time, can reach the right person, and have a MASSIVE impact on them.

Just last week, I shared a post in our Dadpreneur FB group about imposter syndrome (feeling like a fraud). It’s something I deal with, and many others do as well.

Last night, a fellow Dadpreneur, left a comment on my post. We both grew up in the same town, however, I have not had the privilege to meet him, yet.

Here is what he wrote…




This made my night last night.

It was exactly what I needed to hear/read, and came from someone who I have a ton of
respect for, and look up to.

Ironically, it was a post I was nervous to share. It seems the posts that I hesitate to post (nervous/scared/embarrassed/whatever) are the ones that seem to be the most impactful.

Vulnerability is powerful.

Your words matter.

Your story matters.

Owning our story can be hard, but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it

Act as a lighthouse, and always shine your light.

Share your wins & your losses, your ups & your downs.

You never know who’s watching, or the lives you could be impacting.

And one could argue, you’re being selfish by not sharing your story.

UPDATE: Ironically, I sent this out as an email, and received a reply from lady thanking me for the email, and letting me know it was an “email she needed to read after a long day at her corporate job”.
