"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” ~ Maya Angelou
“It is not that you must be free from fear. The moment you try to free yourself from fear, you create a resistance against fear. Resistance, in any form, does not end fear. What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape it, not how to resist it through courage and so on.” ~ Krishnamurti, 1962
It is important to understand that resistance and fear are a natural part of change and a part of your story. Answer each question as truthfully and thoroughly as you can. Take time to identify in detail how you are either sabotaging or nurturing your writing brilliance, healing process and potential to live your most inspired life.
I am working on my memoir daily. But I also work on blogs and newsletters, which will be material for a nonfiction book on woman and writing. Each one fuels the other. I get overwhelmed and need rest. I realize I have the "getting it all out" compulsion syndrome, which comes from fear of too little time, the inner child's anxiety, the need to be heard and seen, judgment, and the resistance to trust and surrender. All of which challenge me every day.
