Let’s Hear Your Story, Inc. is all about how individuals conquer life’s obstacles. Each and every person has a story to tell, whether it be about living with a physical disability, struggling through an illness, losing a loved one, battling with addiction, or the many other twists and turns thrown our way. The story may be a personal story….something you endured, or it might be something that you witnessed, that impacted you in such a way that changed your life as you know it.
While each person’s story is different, LHYS focuses on the fact that everyone has a story. Some stories have happy endings, and others do not. But each person’s story is filled with infinite emotions and often stems from an event, or events that leave an immense impact on their life and the lives of those around them.
When in the moment, it is normal to think “I am the only one going through this”, it is normal to be sad, to be angry, and to feel alone. But when you are able to learn about others that have gone through or are going through something similar, when you are able to read the stories, hear the stories, of people that have overcome similar struggles, you no longer feel alone…you feel hope.
That is the ultimate goal of LHYS…to give people hope. Not only the hope that you can overcome any obstacle that life throws your way, but also, the hope that you do not have to do it alone. And when the time is right, you can then become a part of something much larger than yourself; you can tell your story and give someone else that same hope to conquer their struggles and live to tell their story.
