I’m not going to lie and say it’s easy to record and post some of the things I post, especially the one vlog where I broke down and cried– that one was especially hard. It was hard to film, hard to play back and even harder to post it, knowing others might see it. But I knew I had to do it, no matter how hard it was for me to do so at the time. I wanted people to see me as a human being, and to know how much it means to me that they allow me to share my work with them. I love the people I’m meeting who are getting back to me. It’s the most incredible experience I’ve ever had. And human emotions aren’t always safe, they aren’t always bright and shiny and sparkly and politically correct. But they’re real, they’re normal, they’re healthy.
If you want to write, you should. I still go back to pen and paper sometimes because I love the feeling of the pen in my hand, and when I need to keep up with my head, I go to the computer. And sometimes it’s just typing whatever comes into your mind that kicks your brain into gear. Give it a shot! Because trust me, you never know what you’re capable of coming up with until you do it! And you don’t have to do it for anyone but you. Writing is the most amazing therapy, it really is. Even if no one else ever reads it, do it for your sake first! Make yourself laugh, make yourself cry, and rage. Let yourself vent. Let yourself FEEL. You’ll feel much better afterwards, after you get through the drained part after going through the storm that comes along with it. Trust me, I’ve been through the wringer sometimes for the sake of a good story. And if you ever need support with it, you know where to find me 🙂
