“I’ll spare you the details.”
“Long story short.”
“Story for another day.”
And here we are… women self-stifling, not sharing our stories.
And we wonder why we start feeling invisible?
Please don’t spare us the details.
We want to hear your stories. We want to know you. The real you.
Not the you who trains herself to be the best listener… shielding herself while earning a pass from the effort it takes to let others in.
Life IS stories.
So maybe today’s just not the day – or maybe these aren’t the people.
For some reason this wanted to be written today…
I’m considering this my note to self as I crave getting together with friends again… outside under pretty umbrellas on breezy patios again… after this still-surreal season of creepy covid carefulness.
Let’s not spare each other the details, k?
Real conversation is sexy.
Just like you.
KEEP BECOMING TOTALLY YOU,
And I will, too.
