C'est la vie.
The same concern comes to me when I write. I worry about what I post on Instagram, Twitter, and the books I have published...and I worry about what I blog about. The worrying varies from being scared of what people might think of my writing; will I succeed in my goal to write full time; to being scared of the inevitable bad review, etc, etc.
That concern is there. Hell, those concerns are always there, but writing isn't about if everyone will like me or love my writing. It isn't about a popularity contest (Lord knows, I would never "win" if that were the case.) but it is about being scared.
For example, in love, you have to take that chance and be vulnerable or you may never know/may never find out if the relationship would work or not. Of course, sometimes you are the only one that opens up....but again, that is life. What is important is that you were brave enough to take that chance.
It is the same for writing, you write for you. You have to put those self-conscious concerns to the side and remember that what is really important is writing something you love; writing something you are proud of. To publish that work, one must be vulnerable, yet strong. Putting your work out for everyone to see is beyond scary. To me it feels like putting my heart out there for everyone yet I don't trust anyone with it. It is hard. But, if you don't take that chance, you will never know.
If you fail, at least you tried. Trying is something you can be proud of.
Failing because you never even tried at all would be your world's greatest regret. And I refuse to have regrets. If I fail, I am really succeeding because I am pushing myself, being vulnerable, being strong, and being true to myself.
