How Writing Rips the Wool from Your Eyes

How Writing Rips the Wool from Your Eyes with Stacy Brookman

What an interesting show. It’s always fascinating to me to see how we can get to a similar place through different paths. My approach is #mypart and Stacy’s approach is to write about your experiences to gain clarity, accountability and understanding. 

In this show we talked about:

  • The part we play
  • Shame and guilt
  • Is our memory real or imagined?
  • How to free write
  • Sociopaths and narcissists
  • Values and beliefs

Bottom line it’s important to understand our circumstances, how we got there and the part we played. 

Maybe in the next week you can think about, or write about, something that you are trying to understand in your life. Maybe pick a topic like values or morality and spend time exploring what that actually means to you, are you up for it?

Stacy Brookman is a Resilience and Life Storytelling Expert and interviews fascinating people on the Real Life Resilience podcast. She helps smart, outwardly confident women who secretly have low self-esteem issues due to an emotionally abusive partner take back control and begin to develop the resilience they need to be themselves again. Her free monthly webinar will give you 4 Simple, Proven Methods to Writing the First Chapter of Your Life Story in Just 7 Days. She believes that life is a story…and it’s never too late to start telling yours.
