If you’re planning to write your book and push through with it, you’re subjecting yourself to vulnerability against forces beyond your control. Contrary to popular belief, writing a book is not easy. It isn’t some side hustle that you can opt to do on your free time and guarantee a best-selling book. Frustrated, you’re going to suffer late nights squeezing your head about organizing your plot or finishing a chapter you took so long to conceptualize. You’re going to encounter several dilemmas and suffer an existential crisis more usually now. You’re going to face the ceiling convincing yourself how this is all a bad idea and you should just give up.
It’s perfectly normal to want to tell the whole world about your dream and your excitement to make it happen. It’s okay to tell people about your experiences and the hardships you had to overcome to reach this point. But always remember to work hard for yourself and not for the satisfaction of other people’s expectations. You must train yourself not to allow your self-esteem to be fully dependent on others. You don’t need to always show off you people to constantly praise you for your hard work.
