I’m struggling to finish my personal essay for a graduate school application. I’ve never considered myself a person able to write. Grammar and I have never been in a fluent relationship. I find it laughable I publish my medium blurbs. However, I do this to expel some interal rubbles.
Writing for critque makes me feel overwhelmed with dread. Fear and judgement are at the root of my writing avoidance. I have this sense that my writing doesn’t measure up. I missed my last application deadline. I got upset with myself and then have been avoiding completing it.
I am going to try to get it together by the next. Choosing self compassion over self judgement. Changing the narrative of “nothing is better than something to something is better than nothing”.
