Interesting phenomenon

Do you ever go back and read what you’ve written?

I often do and notice a trend — my writing is poorest when I am in the midst of inflating my sense of self, as if I believe my writing is best when I’m writing about myself because if I am the greatest person who ever existed, everything about me must be, too.


Observing the self as other is another fun exercise in being alive with plenty of time for self-reflection.
