Have you heard the phrase, “don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story?”
Well, I think you should know this: Don’t let a story get in the way of the truth.
Because the truth is, it’s only your stories getting in the way of you being who you want to be and doing what you want to do!
Most of the narratives we run in our own heads are stories and little is based on hard facts.
I’ve had some writer’s block this week but I realised that what is causing the block is a story. A story that says, “no, you can’t write about that, people don’t want to hear that topic, they won’t like that.” Or, “not that, it could be taken the wrong way.”
And before I know it, I’ve written off every topic I can think of because something inside is telling me it isn’t “safe.” But that internal narrative is just made up of stories.
The truth? I guess the truth is that I don’t know for sure until I post it, that if someone doesn’t like it that’s actually okay, and that it’s likely there’ll be someone who relates to it and likes the post.
The truth might be a scary unknown, but don’t let your stories stop you from finding out!
