My sister in law asked me in December to write a piece for her new blog Live Braver.
She asked me to write about my weight loss journey, how I have inspired others and about my success despite the obstacles I have been presented with.
To be honest I have sat down many times to write about my weight loss. I can’t. My weight loss did not require bravery. It required discipline.
I have gone through difficult, horrible times in my life that did require bravery but writing about them puts my family in an awkward position.
For that reason I will not write about those things.
I would like to post something anonymously but something tells me that isn’t too brave. Hiding behind words on a computer screen while telling someone they too can overcome horrible situations isn’t brave, is it? Putting a name to a story shouldn’t matter. The story is what matters, right?
