- Before & After: Oh the stories I have told!
"These are the stories I’ve told myself and others…stories that made me feel better about myself, stories that helped me feel right, stories that helped me feel like I was getting revenge. I got off on these stories. They gave me an out and allowed me to abdicate responsibility." One of the most honest and compelling posts I've ever read.
