  • I haven't been writing much.. haven't known what to say.

    The last while, when I sit down to scribble something.. it feels too heavy. I judge myself and freeze. Particularly with a few areas in life. My head spins, and out spills countless scattered thoughts, fragments floating, pieces waiting to fall into place. Not enough focus and then the fear creeps in. Ugh. Its too tiring.

    A lot has been going on in my head. I've been looking at my life. My relationships. Experiences. Motivations. The cycles I repeat. The distance and anxiety I create when I fear. How I affect other people, and myself. Actions instead of words. Bouncing back and forth between insecurity and confidence. I'm trying to realize, I am in control of this thing. I choose what happens. I'm the one who skews my vision right..

    Why is that so hard to remember?
