I’ve always loved writing.
Before blogging was a thing, I had already started multiple blogs and shared about all the things. I’ve never had a journal, I’ve always publicly shared my private thoughts on the internet.
In the last 5 years I’ve felt myself hesitant to press publish. I’ve overthought who will be reading my blog and how those readers are affected. In a world where everyone seems to get offended by everything, and so much is online I’ve avoided adding to the noise. Maybe its imposter syndrome, maybe it’s being overwhelmed by the constant ping of social networks and content being advertised.
While trying to not offend anyone I’ve kept my drafts unpublished, not offending anyone but also not encouraging or inspiring anyone.
I’m sharing the advice that inspired me to press publish again and hopefully inspires you. Whether its writing or something else that you’re avoiding due to overthinking… just do it..
Write as if no one is reading it
Share your thoughts and opinions freely, with empathy and kindness. Not everyone is going to agree with you but someone out there needs to hear it.
