… and other quotes like this are running through my head today.
“If I thought you were no good, I’d gently tell you to keep the day job” said Linda.
Not sure why this sort of stuff comes on me as I plan to take some time and “really write”.
“Yeah, but when I did web design, I really didn’t care if people used it or changed it or whatever. I did it because I loved doing it. And it didn’t matter after that.” I said.
“But with writing, it really makes a difference when people read it” I continued. “And if people don’t read it then I don’t feel as inspired to write. So I must not really love to write like I am supposed to.”
Insecurity, meet thy home.
I saw this really cool picture today on the internet, so I thought I would include it in today’s musings.
It was from an article about this sign going viral. And somehow, even though I spent the day doing research for names for writing … and taking pictures for future writing … and talking about my writing … I somehow am thinking I am not worthy of the task of writing.
Do other people have this kind of insecurity about the whole thing?
So all these folks say I have some talent here, but somehow I am telling myself it isn’t true.
“You all are saying that because you are my friend.” I said to Linda as we entered town. “You really don’t think I have talent … do you?”
Granted, it was a feeble attempt at fishing for a compliment. But I really have no clue.
Truth? I have a clue. I’m just too afraid to believe it.
Fear really sucks.
