Should you tell a deeply personal story? 3 ways to help you decide, from @KindraMHall [Video]

How do you decide whether to tell a deeply personal story in public, such as at work?

In this 4-minute video, Kindra Hall gives you 3 ways to help you choose whether (and how) to share a tricky story like that:

Recently, I came across Kindra’s work online, and I love it! She shares some great advice, and the topic she’s passionate about is storytelling.

In this video, her 3 main points are:

  • You can choose which parts of your story to tell.
  • Decide whether you’re happy for your story to be public forever.
  • Remember, your story of survival will help other people.

On that last point, I picked out two killer quotes from what she said:

2:20 “For the people who need it most,
        your story of struggle is a gift”

And:

2:41 “There are people out there
      who need your story –
                so they can finish their own”

Awesome stuff!
 

Over to you

If you’d like to learn more, professional speakers Craig Valentine, Denise Graveline and Kelly Vandever also offer great advice on sharing difficult stories.
