Reena’s Exploration Challenge #Week 42 – Challenge



The challenge sits in front of me, daunting in its literal form.

I can see it requires me to step away from my comfort zone, explore the dark patches of my psyche.

I put pen to paper knowing there is an unknown, an area I will either embrace or shy from.

The words flow as I find myself cringing in the expectation of discovery, of a revelation I am not sure I want to make known.

Then a voice says, you can do it, after all, for the most part, you are anonymous, those who read it will only know your words, not your true self.

But I reply that is the issue; my words are my true self.

Then a calming voice whispers in my ear, you are who you are, don’t be afraid, those who know you, love you, nothing can change that.

So I take on the challenge, and here I am.

    This is wonderful – “Those who read it will only know your words, not your real self”. Your authenticity is palpable. It made me think how difficult is it to write what I don’t feel. If I do, zi don’t share those posts on Twitter or other platforms, as it feels like cheating.

    Thanks for joining in!

    Loved this. Wonderful. I was wondering how about how to take on the prompt. Excellent take.
    It takes a lot of courage to write about the real ownself.

Please feel free to comment, I appreciate your thoughts.
