Ignite is an awesome concept. They organize gatherings which give ordinary people like you and me just 5 minutes to get up in front of a bunch of people with the goal of “igniting” them to action.
Not too long ago, Heather Coleman shared her story anonymously over at Katherine Stone’s blog, Postpartum Progress. Heather’s story is intense as it involves details of a Psychotic Break. But it’s also inspiring because people stopped to help her as she struggled during the darkest moments of her life.
I am glad Heather has grown bolder in sharing her story as it is an important story to share. I applaud the courage it took to get up in front of a room full of strangers to tell her story.
Thank you for walking to the front of that room, Heather. Thank you for sharing your journey with them. And with us. You rock.
Go watch her amazing video here. But first, get some Kleenex.
Oh, I’ve read this one multiple times. It is a good thing that Heather is open about this story, it makes people a little less afraid who are suffering.
