The experiences in your life happen for a reason and one of the big reasons is to create change in the lives of others. 

The more that you share your story, the more that you share your experience, the more that you embrace authenticity and the full version of you, the more that you're going to be able to make an impact and a difference in the lives of others.

Everything that happens to you in life is your stuff. Your stuff is your story and your story deserves a stage.
