We own everything that has happened to us. Sometimes I look at what I write about people and I think that maybe I shouldn’t have been so honest but in reality if people wanted you to write nicely about them, they should have behaved better. I don’t feel guilty anymore when I write honestly and openly about people and my experiences with them, no one should. If people are willing to treat you badly why shouldn’t you be able to write about it? Why should we keep our feelings secretive and under wraps?
I spent many years keeping my feelings and thoughts private and not letting people know what I really thought and it wasn’t healthy. Letting things out and actually feeling them is the only way forward. It is the only way we can move past what as happened to us as opposed to covering it with more pain.
Own your stories, write honestly. You don’t owe anyone anything but the truth.
