    By owning everything htat happened to me and telling my story I second guessed whether I should tell the raw truth the way I remember it. After reading this quote I let all that go...and know that I speak out and shout out against injustices...and if people do not like it hell ya...they could have behaved better than they did.

    Quote from Anne Lamott The eternal dilemma for a writer—can you write honestly but not hurt others? We want to tell our stories and we have a right to tell them, but what if we hurt people in the process? I think that if we care about that person, that comes through in the telling of the story anyway. Having said that there are a lot of stories I wouldn't tell because they might hurt someone I care about. If I don't care about them, well, as Annie says, they should have behaved better!

be nice. it's always been my struggle telling my past...much of it contains not so nice stories or experiences but does contain the most wonderful and beautful triumph, a happy life lived with some heartbreak but surely no regrets!

You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should've behaved better... Quote by: Anne Lamott

Ain't this the truth! I'm thankful for all of the ugly I've seen in my life-- It has made me into a strong woman. I will not let others bring me down, ever.

Saving people is a really hard task - it won't always work. But what you can do is love them, make them feel special and let them know there's someone who cares about them and that their life is worth living.
