What should I write about? Why am I not getting as many comments as I was? How come my blog isn't growing as fast as that person's? Why is that person who was following me and I thought had become a friend not reading my blog anymore? Do they not like me anymore?
WHY?? WHAT??? HOW?????............AAAAGH!!!!!!!!
and then I stop and breathe, because I realize
What other people think of me is truly not about me, it is about them. What is most important is how I feel about me. Worrying about what other people think about me is completely unproductive. It won't change their mind.
Growing older brings new perspectives about one's self. Most people are not sitting around thinking about what you are doing. I like me, and after all this blog is written from my perspective. It is about things I love and if anyone person reads and enjoys it then I am thrilled.
So thanks for being here. I hope you like yourself and that if you write a blog it is about you, because blogging is not a competitive sport.
