I Wrote This Today

A couple of hours after my therapy session.

Because I have some great insights I want to share with you...

It's been a few weeks since my last session so we had lots to talk about.

Including topics like my relationships, writing, inner voice, assumptions, etc.

I don't know about you but my inner voice isn't nice, I'll hit on that later.

You've heard some stuff about my childhood so we won't go there.

My relationships with my partner, family, and friends are great.

I struggle with making assumptions but that's not for now.

But writing was something I didn't expect to come up.

And I'm really glad we got to talk about it today.

My writing has done amazing things for me.

That's what I want to talk to you about.

Because it might help you too...

Long Ago

I used to start and stop.

And never finishing a piece of writing.

The only thing I ever published publicly was an IG post.

But I had a folder on my computer full of incomplete written pieces.

All kinds of different stories and topics from my life that I wanted to share.

The problem is I would never finish them, but I couldn't understand why that was.

Now that I think about it more, I'm shocked I was even able to get this far.

When I was younger they said I struggled with reading and writing.

And those voices were always in my head when I was writing.

It's the reason I could never get anything finished before.

I would start to question myself as I was writing.

And tell myself no one would read it.

The old inner voice I mentioned.

Let's get into that next...

The Devil Within

I read something similar to this once.

"Every child is born with a god inside them."

"It's only when you try to change them that they reveal the devil."

For me, that devil shows up in the form of an inner voice that says mean sh*t.

And makes me question myself at times. Just as I mentioned in the writing example.

But here's the thing, you have to learn to not fuel the voice and keep doing you.

You don't have to prove anything. There is no right or wrong, it's just a voice.

You can acknowledge it and be aware of it, but don't give it any energy.

One simple trick I learned is to say to yourself, "I like who I am."

That's it. And then get back to where your feet are at.

I know not everyone has a negative voice inside.

But for those of you who do, this can help.

You see, the voice might never leave.

But you can still be yourself...

The Breakthrough

I took the easy way out.

And went with a topic I was familiar with.

So I could publish my first social media posts on LinkedIn.

This is where my writing started and I was finally able to finish something.

Even more impressive, I also had the courage to post it publicly for everyone to read.

Since that day, I haven't stopped writing and publishing a piece of content daily.

Most of the time it's on LinkedIn, but also every other week here on the blog.

And now I'm able to write about the things I could never finish long ago.

But that's only because I started by talking about what I knew well.

So that I could write about it consistently without much effort.

And over time the consistency helped build confidence.

Which quieted the inner voice that held me back.

Allowing me to branch out and write more.

The result...

I don't doubt my writing anymore.

And I share everything now...

The Lesson

You don't need to write.

But I highly suggest you consider it.

Even if you don't publish anything. That's not the point...

A simple journal will help you get your thoughts out of your head.

And put them on paper so that you can visualize them from a new perspective.

It's one of the ways writing has improved my life and helped me achieve more recently.

Not only has writing helped me quiet my inner voice, but it's also helped elsewhere.

Because once I started finishing my writing and completing my written pieces.

I was able to find other areas of my life where I wanted to make changes.

Often in other areas where my inner voice was holding me back.

Meaning the impact goes far beyond my past writers block.

And helps with other things I discuss with my therapist.

Like relationships, work, family, childhood, etc.

All because of the writing I keep doing.

Remember, no need to be public.

You have nothing to prove.

Write to understand.

Who you are...

With Love,

Steven Arthur George
