I did not publish a new post for the past days due to a reassessment of my writing skills.According to my mentor, I was in the fourth stage of the writing process.
I should learn constraint.
Constraint? I had been in my shell for many years, afraid that people will bruise my fragile soul. When I decided to show my works, it was my moment of breaking free from the suffocating cocoon I wove for myself.
I was about to show my worlds to people when my mentor held me back for my good.
Learn to hold back your ideas for a while, he said.
Now I realized it. I had been pushing myself forward too hardly yet blindfolded. I have to look before I leap.
I paused in writing this piece and took a deep breath.
Release the tension, but hold on to yourself.
