I’d like to start this post by looking at the meaning of a word:

Share
*noun
1.A part or portion of a larger amount that is divided among a number of people, or to which a number of people contribute.
“under the proposals, investors would pay a greater share of the annual fees required”.
2.One of the equal parts into which a company’s capital is divided, entitling the holder to a proportion of the profits.
“they bought 33 shares of American Standard”.
*verb
1.Have a portion of (something) with another or others.
“he shared the pie with her”.
As human beings we all go trough good and bad situations , so when we decide to share our story with others we are able to learn and also to help other people that may be going trough something similar to what we went trough before.My cousin Mysia that lives in Canada, told me about this Instagram account, @maesexpatriadas that is formed by Brazilian moms that live all around the world, away from family and friends. It is amazing how listening to other women talking about their experiences has helped me and encouraged me to never  stop and to keep moving forward. I’ve made new friends, moms like me and I also have shared my story with some of them.It makes me happy to know that I can  encourage and help other moms by sharing what I have lived here in the US until now.
If you have a chance to share your story with others, do it. Don’t be embarrassed or feel like your story is not “interesting” enough. There are so many people that can help us by sharing their stories with us and also many people that we can help.We can all make a difference if we just try .
