The Truer Version of Your Story

Melissa Febos writes, "We all craft a story… the one that makes ourselves easier to live with. This is not the one worth writing. To write your story, you must face a truer version of it. You must look at the parts that hurt, that do not flatter or comfort you." In this course, we'll discuss what it means to meet our own gaze and see what's really looking back and why it's worth facing that truer version of yourself.
