Vulnerability & Authenticity

i-am-461820_1920The articles I appreciate and get the most value out of are the ones where the writer have made true efforts at candid vulnerability.

Vulnerability is one of the highest forms of courage. It makes me so mad when people can’t just take it for what it is and have to dismantle or devalue it.

I know that words hurt and it can make you feel like it would be better to retreat or quit or change how you write.

Please don’t stop doing anything because people online feel some kind of way about it. You will never please everyone and shouldn’t need to. You’re expressing yourself in your space, don’t let readers come in and make you feel bad for doing so.
