You are who you are. That's why writing is so scary. You see yourself in your writing and often it's not what you want to see. You refuse to accept yourself. It's easier to deny it. But you are all you have. That's why writing is so powerful. It helps you accept yourself as you are and start loving yourself. As you are. Not as someone you want to be, some day, which is a myth. And once you learn how to love yourself, you begin learning how to love others. And once that happens, you never look back, and you want to share this power with those who haven't attained it yet.
This is why I'm so passionate about writing.
