This quote is very true of many people and circumstances. When we are insecure of something, it shouts us down and follows us around.
As a writer, I often have to fight insecurities with showing my work to other people, as everyone has very different views on what they love to read. As I get older, I have discovered that pleasing everyone doesn’t work and I have to be happy in myself and believe in what I do. I am lucky enough to have a job that I adore and I enjoy supporting other people on their writing journey, but I can only do that because I stamp on my insecurities and then throw them out of the door. It’s my daily ‘creative’ dance!
Having confidence in what we do is a skill in itself and I hope you all are kind enough to yourselves to let your confidence grow. If not you’ll have to take up dancing for a while:)
