Greetings and welcome to this week’s episode of #LittleThingsThatChangeLives. Our topic of the week is titled Writing: A Trigger That Would Have Stopped Me From Writing. Happy Reading.
Life might not always be the way we want it but patience might finally get us what we want along the way, which has actually worked way more than being impatient for a lot of people.
Writing is one thing that I love doing, right from the days of writing “MESA by Gp” in Oceanography, especially since it’s about expressing one’s self in simple words that people can easily understand; and simple short stories are my main thing because it saves people the stress of trying to understand the meaning of words.
In most of my stories and articles, I use abbreviations rather than real names. It’s something I am very comfortable with and so far, I have been keeping up with this style.
A fan of my short stories who didn’t know that I am the writer of the articles asked me; “do you know who usually write these articles?” I said yes, it’s me. , and from that moment, I stopped getting his feedback like I used to and noticed the enthusiasm for my articles died. What happened you may wonder?, I can’t explain explicitly but I think that he doesn’t think of me to be a writer of such contents. I know that in this life, there are people who will never believe what you are capable of doing, no matter how good you come. If you are in this kind of situation, what will you do? Will you stop striving for perfection because people don’t believe in your capabilities? Will you stop trying to become a better version of you just because some certain people are not validating you? Do you really need people’s validation to explore your God’s giving talent which you obviously know you possess? While some people see a bit of good in every bad person, some others see a bit of bad in every good person and vice versa.
Did I stop writing? No, and I think I will still not stop writing. That little experience could have derailed me from writing, but yes it could not change me this time. I kept moving and you too should keep your fire burning with or without peoples’ validations.
