Be genuine. Be nice. Be confidant. Care about people, because it is people who will listen to your story. Forgive yourself. Forgive others. All storytellers are on the same strange journey, we’re just on different paths and in different places along the way. The person who was behind you in one turn may be barely a speck in the distance ahead of you on the next. Wish easy travel upon those you meet. Commiserate when the road is difficult. Even those we think of as having reached their destination are still journeying. Don’t give up. Encourage those you meet along the way. Share what is available to you and others will share with you. It is a journey, not a battle. Those who treat you as an enemy do so because they are in a dark place. Offer them a light. Be the light.
