Well, I can think of tons of things that would be uncomfortable for me to write about here. But the point is not to make myself uncomfortable. The point is to get over that hurdle of being afraid to be vulnerable - afraid to be honest, to be yourself, just as you really are.
I think the thing that is most difficult for me to share here is my artwork. I seem to have no problem at all writing and posting pictures of things I sew or quilt. I belong to several swap groups on Flickr and have a great time swapping sewn creations with people across the country and around the world! But I never really show my colorful drawings to anyone. I go in phases with doing a lot of these at times. Other times I'm happier sewing, but I have several sketchbooks full of these bright drawings. I'm not sure why it's hard for me to share them. They are very close to my heart. I suppose I am afraid that they (I) will be judged harshly. I feel like they are not "real" art; or are immature because of the bright colors. And, you know, sometimes I even feel that my sewing and quilted things might be judged immature because the same bright colors are in the fabrics I choose.
I'm pretty sure that most of this judgement is coming from my own mind. I keep myself limited. Protected.
Is this fear of failure? ofsuccess? of being rejected?
