Are you following the rules? You always follow society’s rules and one day “poof”; you are now an adult and you know all? And by knowing all I mean, stay in your lane. You are biologist, you can’t change your career to writer. You are not writer, you are biologist.
You are feeling not good enough. You need that creative outlet, but what will your neighbors say? Now you’re confused about what to do. Stay in your field or thy the writing career?
I am structure rule follower, I admit. Society tells me what to do: go to the kindergarten, go to primary school, go to high school, then university (for 5 years, of course!). Then, you’ll figure it out in the real world. On the real job.
When you finish university, you have feeling of loneliness and sadness, you always knew what to do, what is your next project, when are exams. In real life, you, or at last, I didn’t have a single clue what I want to do and work. I knew I enjoy writing and learning about self development, writing as art. This is why I started this blog. I enjoyed creating content for readers, but somehow I felt not so good enough. Who am I to tell people what I know what I have tested and what worked for me? I’m not psychologist, life coach or some other fancy title. I am just a girl who happened to know a thing or two. Stopped writing for few months, because “I am not good enough” syndrome.
My pride and joy, my blog, was on the back burner for months just because I couldn’t figure out what I’ll do with my life. None told me what to do. In some of my posts, I poured my heart and soul and got cricket sounds. These things can shake you and make you quit from passions and hobbies.
If you are something like me, you’ll have the next thing I am going to tell you:
Persistence is the key!
Groundbreaking, I know. Easier said then done. Hear me out. When you (& I) are starting something new, it’s common not to get any kind of feedback. Good, bad, ugly one. Comments from friends and family members. You came excited about the next big project and you got some mean comment. Or they ask “what the hell you know about it?”
Our friends are just nice and careful about us, they don’t want us to be hurt. Sometimes, they question our motives for starting new project. They can be our biggest critics, just because they care.
You just pull up your big girl/boy pants and keep going. No matter how silent it is. Sometimes, you need to be your own biggest cheerleader and toughen the f up.
Don’t believe me. Here is quote from one of the American actresses
“Success is not the absence of failure; it’s the persistence through failure.”
In order to succeed, we need a fail few times. I am willing to sacrifice few fails in life (and this is hard to admit for me) in order to live happily and successful life. I probably won’t quit blogging, because I enjoy it so much, My goal is to share my knowledge. Maybe I am not a trained psychologist, but I do have some smart advice up my sleeve.
I would like for you to join me on this platform, to have a conversation with you and we can share knowledge. What are yours next goals that you thought of abandoning and now you want? Will you be more persistence in life? Let me know in comments down below.
Just remember persistence is the key in life! You’ll need to be your own cheerleader in life, not just critic. And if it helps, I am here for you.
