Blog Every Day in September – Day 5 – What Do You Hide Behind?
What do you hide behind to avoid facing your writing? For Michele Weldon, author of Writing to Save Your Life, her method of choice is pillow making.
In the above mentioned book, Michele states, “Pillows were my excuse for not facing myself and igniting my own power. I spent years with eyes closed, sewing up my truth in beautiful bundles that literally insulated and protected me… I explored my reasons for making those pillows and how they kept me busy and distracted from the truth I needed to tell myself, the truth I eventually found the courage to write down.”
Everyone has things that they use to distract from something they don’t want to do, for whatever the reason they don’t want to do it. Everyone’s reasons are most likely different for not wanting to do something.
Why do you hide away from something that you don’t want to do?
Why do you not want to do it?
Or do you want to do something with a passion and find yourself frozen when you set out to do what it is you wish to do?
Are you hiding from something that you really want to do? Why, if you really want to do something, would you hide from it?
