What Motivates This Writer

My ego.

It’s fragile.

My modesty.

It’s not nearly as fragile.

That self-critical voice.

More critical than my worst enemy.

That self-loving voice.

More loving than my best friend.

People who overestimate me.

I can’t let them down.

People who underestimate me.

I can’t disappoint them either.
