Friends and family are often unable to reach their loved ones who are struggling with addiction or depression. So what’s the key to inspiring someone to take control and change the course of their life? The mutual experience of sharing their journey with others who are struggling.


If you’ve struggled with alcoholism, trauma, severe depression or thoughts of suicide, you know too well the feelings of being utterly alone. Even if you have family and friends who love you, spiraling into the depths of depression, alcohol abuse, and suicide make you blind to your own value. It can leave you feeling as though your loved ones would be better off without you around.

Going through such a journey and emerging a stronger, more resilient person allows us an opportunity to share that journey. Sharing your story can be one of the most meaningful things you can do, not only for your own recovery, but for the benefits of others.

Here’s why.
