A writer uses words to pour their heart and soul onto the page. As a result, they leave themselves open to the world. What happens next is out of their control.
People may react with love, kindness, or admiration. They have the ability to inspire the writer to continue their work. They lift up the writer’s self-esteem and give the writer a feeling of power,
People may also respond with ridicule and hate. They have the ability to rip out the writer’s heart and stomp on it until the writer is left broken and dejected.
Writing can be dangerous. Writers need to have an inner-strength to continually put their words and ideas out there for the world to see.
When people feel they have no control over their situation they tend to develop learned helplessness.
They miss opportunities for relief or change, because they fail to look for such opportunities.
They never try to change anything, as a result they continue to feel helpless.
