For those of us who love to write there are certain realities in which you learn comes with the territory.
1.) There is no instant gratification.
2.) You never know if your writing will cause someone to think or not?
3.) There are people who are not going to agree with you.
4) My favorite one is when people think I am writing about them personally. That is really rare but that’s not say I don’t take inspiration from those who come into my life. ( or have in the past)
