Initially I thought I would write everyday, just to let the thoughts flow out of my mind. I did manage to write everyday because I was in love with writing. Every time that I would see the wordpress app on my phone, that itch to write would come back again. Anything that happened throughout the day, I would want to pen those experiences down.
Sometimes if any funny, sad or angry moment occurred, the first thing that would come to mind was “I have to write this!” rather than actually being in the situation completely. I think that is what happens when you think about writing too much.
After a while, it was more about thinking, and less about enjoying writing. Whatever you do, it doesn’t really matter if you don’t enjoy it. Something which I started to let go of those thousands of thoughts bottled up in my mind, was actually burdening my mind more. So I decided to give myself a break from this burden.
I did not write anything for more than a week now. Not on wordpress, and not in my diary. My mind eventually became calmer. But now that its been a while, I miss writing. You can’t stop something you love to do.
Not writing feels like, being dead for a while. So now it’s time to rise up from my grave.
Do not continue doing anything that burdens you. Give yourself a break. If you love doing something, you would eventually return to doing it with a fresh and calmer mind.
