Couldn't agree more. Not only do stories help others, they help the writer. As you put into words what happened, amazing insights and changes of viewpoint can happen. You can find yourself explaining something "on automatic" and realising that is in itself terrific progress. IMO it's the most healing thing of all to write our experiences. If they involve other people who may read them here, so much the better as the door is then open to put things into perspective and maybe sort out past events previously viewed through the scn filter.
