Sometimes I go back and read things I’ve written and I think “Dang! You wrote that?” The honesty in the words are sometimes life altering.
It’s life altering because it could be a representation of who you are when you aren’t looking. That person you’re afraid to be when you’re not writing. It forces you to take a look at yourself. Deeply. It asks you if you care about the words you wrote or do you care more if they don’t. The more I write, the more I write for me. I write to open myself up and explore me, and I choose to let you be a part of it; if you like. I think it’s great to watch someone grow. I think it’s a beautiful thing.
