This post is inspired by something I saw on Facebook. Someone wrote that the biggest lie they tell themselves is that they don’t need to write something down to remember it. Oh, I wish that were it for me.
The biggest lie I tell myself is that it doesn’t matter when someone hurts me.That I can just brush it off and carry on. That they didn’t mean to hurt me. That they did the best they can, so I should accept it.
It’s funny, because I see the truth so clearly when I’m writing. I explore this theme frequently.
I have to start learning from the examples of my characters – who were created by me. I guess I’ve been trying to give myself the truth all along: by showing, not telling.
