Under Pressure

It’s only day 9 of posting every day, and only day 5 of my oath to do at least one writing prompt a day, and already I’m feeling burned out on the idea.

I know it’s just my depression talking, my imposter syndrome, my general apathy towards doing anything at all. I knew when I got up this morning it was going to be a bad day; sometimes you can just tell.

But at the same time, I wonder if it’s really those things just trying to blockade me, or if they know something I don’t. It’s hard to tell anymore, living constantly in a state of F.E.A.R. I can never tell if something is genuinely a bad idea, or if I just think it is.

That, of course, is even more stressful, and puts me off from doing anything. But I think I’m going to keep at it, anyway. Push through the pain, as they say.

What about you? When everything says “quit,” do you? Or do you force yourself? Or are you one of the lucky ones that thrives when under pressure? Let us know down below!
