All my life, I’ve struggled with describing exactly what it is I’m feeling and relaying it as it is to the people intended. It’s ironical to me, as someone who loves to write and expresses herself through words, that I’d still lack the know-how in expressing mysef justly.
But isn’t that what writing is about? Finding your inner voice and speaking up when you’ve had all those ideas and feelings bottled up for God know how long.
I’ve got readers who tell me how I’ve hit the nail on its head in many of my writings, that I’ve spoken the words that they’ve struggled many a time to voice. Feelings they hadn’t found the right words to express and instances when they hadn’t known this was exactly what they had felt until ta-da they’d read something I’d written that they could relate to and it surprised them that that was the reality of their situations.
What they don’t know is I struggle too! I find it hard as they do too in sometimes opening up and in telling people exactly what I’m feeling.
I ask myself this after much contemplation:
Am I scared of voicing out the real truth?
Is that what’s holding me back?
Your thoughts on this matter would be very much appreciated.
