When I'm not feeling well, I often have issues with self-worth. I usually don't write anything, at the most I write ideas.
I do always write poetry, though, that never stops.
But to my ever growly mind, writing poetry is not the same as writing fiction. Poetry is like breathing, fiction is an effort, hence fiction is worth more?
Now I write it down, it sounds so petty, but that is what my mind has been struggling with.
So how do I deal with that?
When I feel low, anything can blow me over, any negative thought, and I'm off track.
I'm writing this to remind myself that I don't need to do anything when I'm feeling low. I should feel insanely happy for being able to write my poetry and to journal.
That is what is most important to me, and most ignored when it comes to writing when not feeling well.
Funny how that happens.
