Writing a memoir requires the absolute Truth from yourself as you recall events from your mindset. I have learned that just writing the story can be both a psychological and emotional challenge for anyone who has experienced abuse over a long period of time.
Honesty is an absolute must when writing a memoir. “Writing it raw” is required.
The process will dredge up old wounds. Unresolved issues will be reflected back to you. Shedding a light on what is hidden underneath that issue – gets you to the root of it all.
It is here that one finds what is truly important to your Soul.
Be honest with yourself….about yourself. It’s an enlightening experience
