Be Kind to You (Monday Inspiration)

Writing is a creative hobby that is both individual and isolating. And there is a beauty in that, the individuality of your story is what makes it yours. And the isolation from the world is what gives your mind space to travel to far off places and create worlds so different to our own.

But in that individuality and that isolation is also what makes it hard when you compare yourself to others. Because you can’t, not really, no matter how hard you try. Your story, your space, your surroundings are all totally unique.

So be kind to yourself.

You’re doing you.

And you’re doing great.
