But I’m not going to lie to you.
It can be terrifying to share your story with the world because somewhere in that story is the unspeakable truth about marriage, a bankruptcy, a dear child, a drunken homicide… You are sharing the real deal and who you are now and what you say and heard and felt…
Your mind says: What if I take all this time to write my story and then I want to take it all back? Who can I trust with my story and why am I even doing this? Will anyone care?
But it is THAT STORY that keeps you blocked. It keeps you spinning in thoughts and disconnected from your writing, your family, your clients, your dreams, YOURSELF.
And that’s exactly why I want to share my story with you, because I get it. I have been stuck, scared, and isolated with my stories. My freedom came through telling my story on paper and being asked to speak it in front of a crowd.
It was daunting and liberating. But you don’t have to go that far.
We can start with your book, that story that wants to be told.
Meet Coach Debby
I started telling stories when I was 6 and my baby brother was just 6 months old. I would make them up or read from books and he would coo with delight. At age 10, I started writing down my stories to comfort myself from loneliness. These were tender years when I could be honest with my brother and my journal about my heart’s desire and not fear any judgments.
But as innocence departed, I found a great love I had inside to know people and to witness their stories. It was my mission to study philosophy, psychology and especially literature and use it as the mirror of our lives, the metaphor of our own being, and it helped me understand the real life stories that shape us.
Although I have experienced great joy teaching students at the college for over two decades, there came a point where I want to help people write THEIR STORY, not just an essay. Thanks to a deep emersion into 12-steps and life coaching, I started Coach Debby to meet people living out their heroic journeys and looking for a mentor to make sure their purpose was found and their stories were written.
Welcome to signature coaching and mentoring, memoir writing workshops, and mastermind groups.
