The Diary Of My Mind

Discouragement and Self-Doubt

Do you ever get discouraged writing your blog? I had a pretty major set back this week that I don’t want to go into but it really made me question if I should even keep writing anymore? I really enjoy writing but at the same time I constantly fight with self doubt. What do you do when these doubts hit you?

Personally when I have an issue I can’t get it off my mind. It constantly swims around poking it’s head up from time to time. In the past I would have simply given up, but part of this blog is about challenging myself to keep going. Part of growing up not knowing I was autistic, was being told by many people that I was simply dumb or lazy. Understanding myself has helped a lot with this but still these same old doubts pop up from time to time. As i said in another post, sometimes I love how my brain works, other times I hate it.

So what are some of the things that you do when you hit these walls?

  1. Hope you keep at it, always enjoy reading your posts. I try to keep my mind off it when I get self doubt. When I catch myself thinking like that I like to stop what I’m doing and go and do something else. It refreshes my head and thought process and allows me to come back and try again later with a different mind set. Works for me most of the time.

    1. Thank you for the compliment. In the past I would have given up the second these feelings hit. I’ll push through now, and your idea sounds like something I might consider in the future. Thanks!
