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