Find Your Truth
A memoir is a true story about a slice of your life that usually includes an inner transformation from one state of being to another. To write such an account requires deep reflection on the truth, as you understand it, and the courage to share that truth with others.
As children, we are all introduced to a set of beliefs that are often portrayed as “truths.”
They are imprinted first by our families of origin, then by our communities, churches, schools, and friends. They stream like a continuous movie looping repeatedly, 24 hours a day, year after year, impressing us with the values, beliefs and actions expected by the members of our original tribe. Many of these “big picture” truths are reinforced by the culture into which we are born: men are smarter than women, being gay is a sin, interracial marriage is wrong.
My dear friend and co-columnist for Musings of Memoir, has written a powerful and inspiring article. For the full piece, please visit the New Spirit Journal website: http://www.newspiritjournalonline.com/finding-power-in-truth/
