  • Knowing when it’s the right time and whether you should sharing your story on a larger platform
  • Ask: “am I sharing this to help people and serve people or am I sharing this to sort it out for myself”
  • You don’t have to solve everyone’s problems - it’s better as a friend just to listen
  • Being ok with being different - measuring your self worth against who you are and who you want to be - it’s a daily practice - accepting it’s not something you can achieve
