There is something empowering about writing your memoir.
Medically, telling the story of your life can have physical as well as psychological benefits.
Your manuscript becomes a container for your grief, a place that holds the tender memories and the harsh realities of your journey through the most devastating of times. Remembering the good times, embracing the hard times, and comforting yourself with the memories become a meaningful journey of self-discovery and healing.
