Face Your Fears through Writing: A Journey to Self-Discovery

I write to give myself strength. I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I’m afraid of.

-Joss Whedon

Julia Cameron’s Morning Pages, which is just another name for journaling, is a powerful way to explore your mind, your feelings and your deepest desires for your life. It’s also a powerful way to uncover what’s troubling you at your core.

The key is to allow yourself that psychological safety to be vulnerable, open and honest with yourself. Share on X

When approached with this attitude, you will easily discover what really matters to you, as well as new and better ways to achieve those desires.

When you bring this same vulnerability, openness and honesty to your non-fiction book, you connect on far deeper levels with your readers.

But it all begins with you. It all begins with me, with my willingness to do this internal work first, before I write my book to serve others.

And this work requires courage. It requires a commitment to face my fears head-on, until I realize they’re not real.

Joshua 1:9 is my favorite verse on courage.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

It’s a great reminder that God demands that I be courageous and joyous in my writing and my life.
