I also feel like it’s a burden to share what I write with my family. I’m not sure my family is the right audience for what I write because they view me differently than others do and it can be hard for them to see a different version of who I am.

The worst for me is when they ask to read something, I send them the article. And then nothing. No response whatsoever. That hurts more than if they show no interest at all.

M.S. Psychology| I write about life, relationships, things that make me laugh, cry, or all of the above in one piece. Reach me at annaismithwrites@gmail.com
