Stop Hiding

So I haven't been writing much lately. And what I have written, I've kept to myself. Why? Mostly because I was afraid to show so much of myself to the world. Yeah, most of the world won't read it but I was afraid to put out there my private life, my fears, my insecurities. And yet, I can't not write about my life and about what I know. I usually  don't have any issues writing about how I feel and about the things I'm struggling with. But at the same time, I keep to myself a lot. I honestly don't know why I'm writing this except for the fact that last night I met an artist who told me that I needed stop hiding (in terms of my art.)  It took me many years to consider myself an artist and even more to call myself one. But I am, and I think I'm going to just start creating unapologetically. If I'm going to be judged, then so be it.
