More wisdom from Cheryl Strayed

What makes Cheryl Strayed, who wrote Wild about hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, special?

Her “ability to go to dark places that we don’t like to talk about,” writes Edward Nawotka in an article in the October 22, 2012, issue of the Dallas Morning News.

“Urging people to do the same is something she returns to time and time again.”

Strayed explains, “Most people have some extraordinary elements to their life or an experience that is fascinating, but it feels risky to talk about it. People fear that others might judge them or not forgive them.”

That has not been her experience, Strayed says. “Whenever I have told the truth, my truth, even when it is not pretty, I find people read that and think, ‘Yeah, me, too.’”
