A few years ago, writing used to be one of my absolute favorite things to do. In school I won a few small competitions and used to write fiction, nonfiction, essays, anything I wanted to write or had to write for an assignment. Almost all my free time was spent writing. But over time my anxiety got worse, and for some reason I slowly stopped writing completely. I feel like I’m constantly being watched and judged for what I write and I can barely get a few sentences down on paper without cringing at how horrible they sound and deleting everything. I tried keeping a journal but I eventually ripped out the small amount of pages that I had actually filled out and flushed them down the toilet because I thought someone would find them and laugh at me. I haven’t wrote anything in years and I feel so lazy and frustrated about it. Anyone have advice on how I can get back into it???
