It has always been so much easier for me to sit down and write when I am not at my happiest!
I find that to be a huge hinderance for so many reasons other than the obvious, of course it would be nice to feel the desire, the itch to write when life is full of sunshine.
More to that though, I feel apprehensive about venting those deeply dark emotions in such a way that I could be discovered! Be it on paper, where I could keep it to myself, or on something like this blog...it is difficult to allow myself to be completley honest about my feelings during these darker times.
I know that writing is like a form of therapy for myself, so it is counter-productive for me to allow such mental blocks to get in the way. It is something that I really need to get over. I must do it to heal, move forward, and grow!
