Hey hey hey journey group! I hope each and every one of you are doing well. This morning at our PFO committee meeting, we had a Lifetalk about how “you are not your story”. What it is means is that although your hardships in the past are a part of you, they don’t define you by any means. In our small groups (a group of 5 or 6 teens that you become really close with throughout the year), we discussed something in our past that we consider to be part of our story. I shared some really personal stuff about my family and how it affects me. My small group was so supportive and helped me understand how important it is to not dwell in that place of discomfort. This made me realize that each person has something negative that they attach themselves to, and that pain is something that we all have together, and we all have to let go of together.
