There was a time when I was extremely cautious about my writing and I tried to say what people wanted to hear, even if that wasn't exactly how I felt at the moment, because it was quoted by some well-known author or that it sounded profound.
When I gave up doing that , when I started to experiment, and write about what I was going through or what I feel at the moment... even if it means exposing my wounds and scars, my weaknesses. Only then was I truly able to set myself free.
It's so important to listen to our hearts and to heed its call. Any other way is prison.
