Stacy Brookman on Show #63: Discovering Real Life Resilience Through Storytelling

Stacy brookman

Everyone has a story to tell. When and how you tell your story determines whether you live your life thriving or barely surviving.

Living with her sociopath ex-husband for years, Stacy Brookman knows how it is to be in an abusive relationship and how to get back on her feet following the emotional devastation.

This experience, and learning how to overcome the emotional aftermath, inspired her to help others discover the power of healing themselves through telling their life story. She is a Resilience and Life Storytelling expert and the host of Real Life Resilience Podcast. Her mission is to help people, especially women, heal emotional trauma by writing their tough life stories.

Stacy joins me today to share how to pursue real life resilience through telling the story of your life as well as the benefits of writing about your life experiences. She discusses how the brain functions when you write about your life, especially the tough times you’ve been through, and how she discovered that writing is beneficial in healing. She also shares the different writing strategies you can use to help you become healthier as well as the steps she takes to get things done so she has the power to live more each day.
