Okay, I know I'm going to sound really lame. REALLY REALLY lame. But bare with me. Please? I used to write a lot for fun. I learned how to read when I was two, and how to write when I was three. I loved it. I wrote some terrible poetry, but writing was a great outlet for me. I loved it, with every fiber of my being. Writing was my one true love. This love however, didn't last very long. I started to notice other writers and the way they wrote. I started to compare myself. I saw these wonderful writers with their eloquence with words and how I was just so....inadequate. My thoughts because so twisted and dark that I began to grow more and more frustrated as the days went on because I was realizing I was an awful writer. I could no longer finish anything anymore. And that is when my self esteem went down the drain. My motives were no longer to express myself but to impress myself. I get very emotional when writing now. If I do write, I'll get angry with how horrible I think it turned out or not bother completing it. If I'm writing on paper, I'll rip it up and throw away the paper. I just wanted to know how to start writing again without judging myself?
