“You wouldn’t berate them for writing badly, or tell them to stop writing, or tell them what they’re doing isn’t worth it because they’re never going be good anyway. Or tell them that there’s no point. Or tell them that it’s too hard for them so they might as well give up now. Or tell them that nobody wants to read what they’re writing and probably never will. Or tell them they suck.
Whoaa. Dude, where did all the depressing just come from? Who would ever consider telling those things to one of their closest friends in the world?
… One question: have you ever told any those things to yourself?”” —“You’ve Got a Friend In Me (Well, Maybe)” from Emilia Plater
