Why I Started Blogging

For the longest time, I didn’t know what to do. As I got up each morning struggling to get out of the bed, I fought with the thought of who I really was. What my identity and reputation was in the eyes of others, what kind of weight my name carried around. I told myself, “I should pursue ____” because then “people will ____” and that vicious mindset can continue for one’s entire life.
