There is a lie that is whispered to me that goes something like this:
“If you leave, no one will notice you left.”
That lie becomes a nagging thought, played on repeat, at different volumes throughout the day.
Even just now, that lie was whispered to me in a different form:
“If you quit blogging, no one will care.”
Writing that, I almost believe it.
“No one will care.”
Thankfully, I’m stronger than the lies today. Able to push back against the whispers of deceit.
- To the lie of “If you leave, no one will notice you left”, that may be little true. But, eventually, someone is going to call and reach out.
- To the lie of “If you quit blogging, no one will care”, that may be a little true too. Ultimately, I write for myself first. If I don’t have anything to write, I’m not going to write. That’s okay.
The best lies are laced with truth.
For the days where I am weaker… I need to remember that someone does care.
