On taking a break

I was going to take a break from blogging because I thought I should just be writing for myself instead of blogging to make a personal statement. It’s hard to be completely honest when you know you have an audience, but I’ve changed my mind.

People told me they are inspired by my words. I should be writing for these people, people who love my writing and gain strength from my words. I need to continue writing so these people would know it’s okay to be a non-conformist, to follow their own conscience, to not let anyone walk all over them, to be okay being a loner, and to go after their dreams.

I should focus on the positive impact I’m making to the world instead of giving up on what I love because of how haters will continue hating me.

I’ll be back.
