Today’s Writing Prompt:
“Self-censorship is not just self-betrayal and self-abandonment (which would be bad enough), but soul-betrayal and betrayal of our Muse, out inner voice, our highest self.”
Too often we censor ourselves, our actions, and our work in hope or fear of what might happen if we otherwise don’t. What words would you write today, and what actions would you take, if you had nothing to fear, nothing to lose?
Honestly, I’d write a big FUCK YOU to everyone that I’m not close to. I have to censor myself for so many people just because very few understand me. I am thankful for people like The Boss and her sister and brother-in-law that understand me perfectly (or at least almost). For those that don’t understand me well, I have cut myself off at the knees when I don’t censor myself and try to fit in to their mold. It’s wrong. It’s a travesty. But it is life.
