I completely agree, Stephanie. Thank you for your feedback and for checking out my blog! It can be the most difficult place to break through because once we’ve opened that space of free expression, there’s nowhere to hide. Which is definitely beneficial in every way especially being a writer, but I think we might just have to learn how to expose ourselves in such a way while embracing the discomfort and using it as a catalyst. I’m SO guilty of it. I decided to start an advice column on my blog for this reason, firstly because I love it, and because it will be a constant flow of ideas, perspectives, and introspection that will benefit not only myself but also others.
