What to do when your self doubt kicks In especially when you are blogging.
This has been a problem for me, like FOr-EV-ER. I felt insecure about what I had shared on my blog. Whatever you called it imposter syndrome, fraudster, doesn’t sound like the authentic-ME. Well, you name it every self-doubt can be taxing and IT IS. Deleting posts, reformatting website and retyping contents is so time consuming and energy draining. The more I do it, the more I doubt myself. The time I hold on to drafts, the more my blog post gets stalled. The longer my website gets stalled, the longer I am in comfort zone. When I am in a comfort zone, my website collected lots of bugs on the web. Untold story is that all of the stalling and keeping the website running with Nothing to posts as it’s left idle for years, all of that costs EXPENSES year in and year out. Yup! truth is out of the bag.
So here are the 3 ways to Kick Self-doubt while blogging, well practically for keeping yourself up in confidence.
3 WAYS TO KICK THAT SELF-DOUBT.
NUMBER 1: NOTHING IS PERFECT.
Perfection is only for those who make too many excuses for themselves to be un-improved, to stay status quo and complains about all things. ( I was in this category, for the longest time)
When we wait for longer time to have better content, or better in our skill in writing. Things just won’t move and be better by itself. We got to stomp and crushed that perfection button in-order to let us take ourselves forward along with our fear and get our things done. The more we wait, we end up having too many undone things. Work loads and unfinished business piled up when we kid ourselves in having to do things perfectly all the time. Be kind to ourselves and give ourselves room to improve as we experience the not-so-perfect work we have put out in the world of blogging or even not blogging perhaps a text we had sent to . Besides, I can tell you that it is a good feeling to just let things flow as we wanted it to flow so much in our thoughts.
NUMBER 2: DO IT ANYWAY, don’t give up and continue to blog.
The fear on being heard overwhelms at times. Critics are everywhere even in ourselves , in the head. Try to put all those negatives aside first, as what we want is to learn how to step-up in being our own voice. It is not easy at first but think of what matters to you first. AT this point of time when you are reading this, you are breathing and in the best form, showing that you exists as human. You, Me and all of us humans are still living on earth doing our thing. We are born to exists with our own voices and our own show, someone asked me “which is the biggest movie you had ever watched” and I was thinking “biggest movie?”. My thoughts were all my favorite movies lasted 2 hours or 3 hrs max. Dramas would perhaps have more than 100 episodes but will not be last for 3 hours an episode. Then, he said “the movie of YOU”. Have I not been consciously living my LiFE? Something like an epic to a similar story like the one showed in THE TRUMAN SHOW starring JIM Carrey.
