I just can’t.
I quit working full time at the end of last year to pursue my acting career and take my writing seriously. I knew it would be hard. But this is a lot.
I’ve got about 5/6 posts in my draft folder that I’m still yet to finish.
I have auditions to prep for.
Need to go and shoot a whole bunch of content for my blog and Instagram.
I’m trying to make some dolla dolla without having to sell a lung.
I’ve my book in the works that I still need to sort the illustrations out for and get interest from publishers.
Still yet to finish the storyboard for my short film that I’ve been dragging out since 2015
I’m trying to sort out my fitness routine and unhealthy eating habits.
As well as trying to ensure that my mental health doesn’t deteriorate.
Balancing this whilst trying to create interesting blog and social media content is hard af. I have so much respect for those that do this authentically and create great content..and those that do this full time, I really do.
As I’ve said before, I want to be as transparent with you all as possible so not every post will be rainbow drops, unicorns eating candy floss, and ‘look at my nice outfit’. Social media is not reality. Social media should not dictate your life or your happiness. And social media is not the be all and end all.
I’m writing all this to tell myself, and any of you guys in similar situations not to give up. There will be a struggle. You will compare yourselves to others even though we all know you shouldn’t really. And some days you just won’t want to write. That’s ok. Just make sure that you listen to your own needs. Don’t push yourself or break yourself just to please others. Once the joy of what you’re doing goes, is it worth continuing?
But, if this is what you love and want to thrive in then keep going…you will probably fall, just make sure you get up and dust yourself off. You can do this. ❤️
