I’m really in a pickle right now with my horrible inner critic.
I used to love blogging nearly every day. I would type down anything and everything that popped into my head. I would also share my drawings from the week with my blog followers. I never really worried about how many followers I had or how many comments I would get on my posts.
I remember how happy and excited I used to feel when I was blogging.
Now, I feel like there is this expectation that all of my blogs be these curated masterpiece posts. There is this nagging expectation that my blog posts must solve all of the world’s problems before they’re good enough to post.
So in response, I haven’t posted anything for a long time! I mean, a REALLY LONG TIME!
This weird sort of self-sabotage seems to be infiltrating my posts on my social media accounts too. Sometimes I struggle with writing the perfect caption for an Instagram post, and I never get around to posting that picture because the caption will never be just right.
Is this something that you struggle with too?
The only solution that I have come up with is to simply make myself write more and post it. I decided that some journal style posts would be a good start to work past these feelings of inadequacy.
What are some other ways to work past my inner critic?
