In the process of writing, of discovering our story, we restore those parts of ourselves that have been scattered, hidden, suppressed, denied, distorted, forbidden, and we come to understand that stories heal. As in the word ‘remember’, we re-member, we bring together the parts, we integrate that which has been alienated or separated out. Self-discovery is more than gathering information about oneself – it alters us. We re-store, re-member, re-vitalise. Writing our story takes us back to some moment of origin when everything was whole.
