Dear Brain Please Stop Overthinking

"Writers are too neurotic to ever be happy." Just enjoy the moment, be grateful, be positive, be happy, keep an open mind...and sometimes allow yourself to be weird. (great advice for living sans the "weird" part) In my last post I wrote about my disenchantment of not being able to write as prolifically as other mylot members. This has cause me to despair and "go off the deep end" But after further consideration I decided to reverse my attitude towards this writing handicap I believe I'm back to my happy normal neurotic self.

'Pull a rabbit out of a hat'_This figure of speech means to produce something seemingly out of nowhere. I'm not a prolific writer unlike other mylot members...

I think that the most important thing to remember when we do anything, it's to do it by and for ourselves first, so those mean comments cannot affect us so much. Whenever I write something, it comes from my heart and mind, I never regret something (well, sometimes I see some things I wrote and say: OMG I was so stupid haha) but you get my point I hope

@luispas _We want our writings to be read and appreciated although it is inevitable to receive criticism occasionally. Whether this discourage or challenge us to improve would depend on what value we put on our writings. A thick skin and a sense of detachment helps.

A writer will always be living in his own realm of thought. His observation will be deep and meticulous. So this will automatically have some effect on his brain. He stitches each and every word at appropriate place and gives a beautiful expression to his emotions. I do like that. We can not call it neurotic self.
