Sometimes I want to give up. Sometimes I don’t want to write anymore. And sometimes I do give up and stop writing.
Have you been there? Stuck and filled with doubt.
Seth Godin has a great term called The Dip for when you’re in a temporary setback, when you are ready to give up and decide to either quit, or stick. But there’s another dip, which is more about internal self-doubt, which I like to call the pit.
For many of us, it is a very real place we fall into when we feel “lesser-than,” confused and exhausted from doubt, to the point of giving up.
