I write books

When people ask me what I’m doing nowadays, I feel uneasy and I still find it quite difficult to say that I write books.

At first I’d say it’s because I could feel people judging me. But actually, now that I think about it, I’m the one judging myself. I think I know what people think, but the truth is nobody knows what’s on other people’s minds.

What I do know though, is what I think. And so far, to be honest, it’s not pretty.

I realize I’m not being fair to my friends and family. Instead of expecting the worse from them, I should just let it go and accept that I don’t know what they’re thinking. And even if they do say something, it’s just an opinion, nothing else.

After all, it’s not up to them to make me feel good about what I do. It’s up to me.
