Thank you so much for your response! I completely agree with your sentiment. It’s not fair. We (the victims) are left with scars that take years/decades to resolve (and sometimes they never get resolved).
I often think about how much my life would be different, how much more confidence I would have if I didn’t have a rough childhood.
Hey Nikita, I’ve come to view writing as a documentation of the things I have learned. So why not start from there? What have you learned today, in the past week, month, year, decade? Don’t worry too much about how others might see your writing (I’m guessing the lack of confidence is from being scared of how others might judge). Write for yourself and your own learning!
