We all need something in life to look forward to; something to reach for. I love to write and if you had told me years ago that I would want to write about the problems I face, I probably would have laughed and said that the last thing I would want to write was anything dealing with ‘self-help’. The reason for this? I love fiction and I love writing it; I’ve always found writing about anything true boring. However, I’ve come to realize that so many people suffer with anxiety and while I still want to be a fiction author and I have my sights firmly planted on becoming one, that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to help people by writing about anxiety and the many issues we face that come along with dealing with fear. This is one of the reasons I write this blog. I feel it is my duty to help others and myself with getting through our fear. In addition, I want to try to write more and send more of my stories, articles, etc. to places so that I can both feel great about myself and know that I might be helping others along the way. Everyone needs something in life to look forward to and to fight for, not to mention something to get through their anxiety for.
