This right here is a very powerful truth in just 3 short sentences. Before starting Pain to Paper, I found myself at a cross-roads in my life. I had two options: I could either keep living the way I was living and shying away from the world and from my painful realities of which I had previously lived, or I could make a change and create a platform to share all of the stories and truths that had been hiding out inside of me over the years. I knew the obvious choice, because if I didn’t choose this path I was going to emotionally burst at the seams.
I had fears and doubts about sharing certain stories and events because I was concerned about revealing how others had behaved or treated me; but then I decided that healing my heart and soul by sharing and connecting with others was far more important to me. After all, life is all about give and take- there are pros and cons when making any decisions in this world. I always say that the trick is to choose the option which carries the most potential for creating a better reality and a more positive YOU.
Making decisions has never been one of my talents, not to say that I am not a strong or committed girl, but in the past I have had the tendency to escape rather than decide. This mission, however, was one of the easiest decisions I have ever made. I knew that by creating this site I could possibly HELP others like me who have bottled their stories and emotions and encourage them to seek a better and more positive outlook on their path to healing. That is my goal and what drives me to this laptop every single day.
Make a bold decision today, whether small or monumental: choose to better your reality one step at a time.
