Stories from Strangers

We’ll have a new question here every month for you to answer and engage with. Think of this as an online journal, except everyone gets a page in the book, and no one knows who’s written what (fun!).

Pour your heart out or read through the pages of someone else’s heart. Either way, we hope you find comfort in reading these stories from strangers.

What is one event in your life that you wish you could change, and how would you change it?

    There are so many things I’ve thought about instantly, like: Why did I stay 6 years in a toxic, unhealthy, emotionally abusive relationship?
    or, had I looked at our move overseas as if it was temporary and not forever, I might have enjoyed it more, instead of stressing the whole time how we would make it work…
    However, both of those pretty stressful times in my life, helped me become stronger, wiser, smarter, softer, more empathetic and if I changed that, I’d change me.
    So as much as I sometimes wish I could change things, I know things are exactly the way they happened for a reason.

    My parents falling out of love & watching it. I don’t think there would be anything I could do to change it. It was hard to see but it made me value the kind of love I would like to experience one day.

    Having covid. The trauma of it. Resulting in PTSD and deep anxiety. The disconnect it caused with me and my breastfeeding baby at the time. Her dad had to become the sole provider for her as my milk stopped and I was hospitalized. The side effects. Exhaustion. Brain fog. Being on medication. In my ideal world, covid not happening would be what I would change

    I have experienced many things in life that have affected me deeply and greatly. But looking back on all of those experiences, I don’t think I would change a single one. They have all happened to bring me to the place I am at and become the person I am today. It is easier to look back and think how you would change a choice you made or whatever you did but that is from a place of higher knowledge and growth. Everything happens for a reason ❤️
