But what if no one likes me??
When I first decided to redo my website, I knew that I wanted to have a blog element to it. I've always liked the idea of blogging, and I've always had the best of intentions, but I've never really been able to start it and stick with it. This leads to feelings of inadequacy, of failure, of "geez, Tracy, why can't you just start something and stick with it..." Yadda yadda yadda blah blah blah.
Of course, as any writer, or any human who leans toward perfectionism has experienced, there are also feelings of not being good enough at what you do. What if no one likes what you write? What if you just aren't interesting enough to keep people's attention? I've struggled with that a lot, and what I have decided to say to that is a resounding
Who cares? For starters, this is my opinion. This is my place to speak my mind. Not everyone is going to agree with what I have to say. In fact, there's a good chance that most people won't agree with what I have to say! Is that going to stop me from saying it? No.
So welcome. If I haven't scared you away yet, take a seat and hang out for a while. I'm never going to start if I don't start, and so here I am, starting. I even wrote this one my phone so the perfectionist in me can't make me edit a million times. (Because believe me, she's a bit of a bitch, and she'll do it.)
I do hope you enjoy your time here, and that we can both find something meaningful from this relationship.
