Over the past couple of weeks, I have had a great amount of resistance to writing. I have been experiencing 'blankness' where I would usually have something to write about at all times. Many of the points that emerge throughout my day are either being directed or have easy, practical solutions. For the other points, I tell myself that it may not be best to share and that it would be better for everyone if I walked these points in private.
In general, I have not been motivated to push myself. Like the wind is out my sails. I did not realize until recently how much I have relied on others to keep me motivated - and now I see just how much I have been relying on others to do this for me when that outside motivational support is no longer here.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to give into my resistance to writing. I accepted my 'blankness' and/or told myself that it would 'go away' and that I would be back to myself with topics to write about again. I thought that I needed a break - that, maybe if I took a breather that I would soon have many things to write out and about. So, the days passed and nothing changed - I did not have any 'pressing' points emerge that I felt a desire to write about.
I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to go deeper into my process of understanding myself because of fear. Fear of what others will think, fear that I'm not directing 'new' points effectively, and fear that the things that I would like to write about will cause backchat.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not push myself as hard as I was pushing before because my relationships and daily living have become very stable where I am now able to support my family and others in a way that is best and I'm self-supporting myself with practical, common sense solutions. I have been so accustomed to everything being a shit-storm during my existence and using this as my only point of self-motivation that when and as there is no longer uncontrollable chaos and turmoil in my immediate world, I see no reason to have to change anything else. If it 'ain't broke, don't fix it', right?
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to give into the fear of not being liked or causing problems/discomfort with others instead of not allowing this fear to influence me and to continue writing regardless.
I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to see that my desire to keep the darker stuff about myself private is in-fact me not wanting to expose this stuff to myself. Why open up a can of worms when I've finally gotten some relief?
