Sorry, the post I had written, the post I am passionate about, the one I want to put up here, I'm not brave enough to publish.
That's right, you read that correctly, I am too afraid to post it.
Self censorship happens all the time, "what will they think?", "What if I offend my company or my boss?", "What if I get "cancelled" for posting this?"
For years I have struggled with authenticity about who I am and what I believe... and I still do. But my coaches have been there for me, helping me process the negative narrative, asking "what if?" and encouraging me to push my self imposed limits.
Writing daily has been mind opening and rewarding, but it's still a battle against the voice that says, " not good enough, too risky, they won't like it." But I'm not beating myself up about it and I'm still writing.
Thank you for reading.
