I spend so much time not writing or doing what I love because I am so concerned about how it will be received or if it will be good enough. This fear or concern causes a production freeze. I consider the option that doing nothing is better than producing something bad. I think this thought [...]
Can we DTR?
Oh hey, DTR means "define the relationship" in case you did not know. I never actually know who reads these things I write.
