Do you ever stare at your various accounts and thing…”Huh, I should really write something.”
So you end up writing something that is really just crap hoping to stay “out there?”
There’s a lot of useless crap on the Internet.
Crap isn’t fair to you.
Besides, people don’t respond well to crap.
And when people don’t respond you’re left with that whole “WHY DO I DO THIS? NO ONE LIKES ME!” crisis.
Everybody goes through it.
I know I go quiet when my brain is playing mean tricks on me, but I also go quiet when my brain is swimming along just fine.
And you know what? Quiet is okay.
I like it when my brain is quiet, because most of the time it won’t shut it.
And a brain that won’t shut it is exhausting.
A quiet brain means I can sit in the sunshine on the floor and put a puzzle together with my little kid without worrying about where else I need to be or what else I should be doing.
A quiet brain means I take full breaths instead of short little gasps.
And besides, quiet is much better than crap.
I wonder…do you feel compelled to fill up your empty space? Or do you embrace your silence and let others shine?
