  1. I loved all of them, especially #7 & #14. Part of what I don’t like about sharing is when people get into the “my story is worse than yours” mode to make a point to me that my stories are not as important as theirs. My mother is terrible with doing this. No matter what you say, she knows something worse even if she has to make it up.

    • Oh Nancy, this is something that I have embraced wholeheartedly in the past few years. It is just a shame that my experience had to be repeatedly nullified for me to “get” the importance of not doing it to someone else. I did have a post about it, but it didn’t make the 31days. I’m going to have to see if I can post it soon.
