Jumping in Without Fear

Jumping in Without Fear

The Powerful Paragraph

Hemingway once said, “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at the typewriter and bleed.” While I don’t share the notion that there is “nothing” to writing, I do share what Hemingway eloquently captures in this quote: fear. Okay, perhaps Hemingway wasn’t going for fear, per say, but what he is saying is that a writer dumps everything they have onto a page, especially when they are writing something personal and meaningful. After I wrote some of my first short stories, the idea of sharing them with anyone terrified me. But after some coaxing, I decided to share my stories with others, and it has completely changed the way I see this fear. Instead of shying away from the fear (which stemmed from my fear of judgment), I leaned in, implemented feedback I found helpful, discarded feedback that was not, and found that my writing was even better on the other side. Now I see the sharing aspect of writing as another helpful and important aspect of the writing process.

Not only is resentment a poison to relationships, it’s a poison to our own mental health and outlook on the world. When we allow another person or entity to be the source of our pain or suffering, we disempower ourselves from a sense of ownership, responsibility, and accountability for the situation and the emotions we experience within it.
