You write for yourself. You write because you felt something; at the time it was all that mattered. People come in and out of your life. Some leave a mark on your skin, some don’t. Be proud of the people who you have crossed paths with. They have made you who you are today. These people have taught you valuable lessons. Maybe at some stage, they loved you. Maybe they don’t give a damn anymore, maybe they do. Either way, the memories you hold are important experiences in your life that shape and influence what you write. Be proud of your writing regardless of who approves of it or not and regardless of who cares. I would be. Write for yourself.
