This is going to be a normal blog post, no cliché poem or rant as usual, I hope it’s up to good standards in terms of what I like to post and so forth. I guess I should begin by expressing a huge thank you to the ones who follow my blog… I know I have a long way to go until it’s perfect and until I have more than 20-something followers, but regardless of numbers, that hasn’t stopped me from blogging or writing in general which is a good thing because it does feel like a competition, it’s like a battle to get people’s attention to what you’re saying or expressing, it can stress you and make you feel less valued than others who have better blogs, better content and all of that. Currently, I am in the process of writing and putting together a book of poetry, I have about 10 poems written for it so far, I’m still trying to perfect each one, because I want to make sure it’s exactly what I pictured it all to become, being a perfectionist and a self-critical person does affect my ways of writing and it does make me anxious about even publishing at all, because a lot of people write and at times, I do feel like my work is not good enough for anyone to read, let alone myself included. It’s my dream to become a published writer, ever since I was a child who could read, I was in awe of poetry and books too, it was an escape from reality, a way of coping during my teenage years and helped me recover from a lot of traumatic experiences, which I have written about in the past, writing in general is an amazing coping method to me, and the fact that words can make or break you; it says a lot about the way words have a control over us to an extent. Being a sensitive person, a lot of words have broken me and others have saved me from despair. And as I get older, I appreciate the kind words I hear every day, regardless of how small the content. Time passes by so fast, sometimes I forget that one day, life as we know it will be over and all of our wasted time was spent on the wrong people, the wrong words said, and so on. If anyone reads all of this, then I thank you because this really means the absolute world to me. Hoping this post is okay and if you’d want me to post more posts like this, then please feel free to comment your opinions and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
Thank you and have a great Easter weekend,
