Pain and Inspiration  August 15, 2013 - August 31, 2013

Reading and Deliberating


Tell me about pain, dark experiences and hardships. I want to hear about your struggles and what you've gained from them, whether it be hope, strength, a glimmer of promise or just a broken heart and tears.

I want to hear about your personal pain and heart aches. Something that pulls at my heart strings and makes me feel all... emotional. It can remain dark or you can show what you got out of it, anything inspiring. Whatever it is, don't think, oh I'm not good enough to enter, give it a go!
