Just a brief blog post, for now. I wanted to give specific attention to my core message. More than anything, throughout my writing and various online projects, this is what I am telling others.
Please also see my How To Believe companion post.
As someone who struggles with chronic physical and mental illness, I don’t always find it easy to believe in myself and my own dreams.
I would say that my message is aimed, more than anything, at those who need to hear it – the people out there who find it particularly difficult to believe in themselves and their dreams. These are often the ones who, in many respects, have the most to offer.
Yes, everyone struggles – but no, not to the same extent.
Some of us struggle much more than average, with daily life. It can often be a case of running, simply to stand still.
I believe in you.
So, yes – believe in yourself and your dreams. They are words, nothing more, but they are powerful. Too many people out there will discourage you, if you are vulnerable – but I want to be the one who tells you that your dreams are not “unrealistic”. They are achievable. Keep going, and eventually, you will get there. We will get there.
I recently shared a post about how I deal with mental illness and related topics, in my fiction. This may be of interest.
