I am writing my life story. My Life as an Empath-Book by Jonny Foster
I could use some advice especially from those who live a very paranormal life and those who have written books about their life experiences. I have wanted to write a book for a very long time. But only recently(within the last few years) have I said that writing a book about my life as an empath or turning my psychic journal into a book would be a better idea. While this is something I have already started and have decided that I am going to reveal a lot which I initially kept private, there are some things in my life story that I feel I should not mention either because this info is related to me but not my own personal business or because some of the terminology that was included in actual angel messages given to me is something that can have negative feedback. It's really those two areas that I am struggling with.
I consider this book to be an autobiography, but is it a tell-all? And if it is, do I really wanna tell all? I struggle because the publishing of this book can go two ways: It can be something that doesn't take off as I thought and only a few of my friends will read it, or it can be very popular and lots of people may want to purchase and read it. While that part is great, it also scares me because my truth, my personal spiritual journey will be read by strangers who I don't know. Do I want that kind of notoriety? While people know of it being a book on my life and experiences, names in the book have been changed for privacy. So if I write about my soul brother who happens to be very powerful with all sorts of abilities and gifts, his real name and identity isn't revealed in this book. I just fear the outcome. For the first time in my life, I worked in a public venue and I had blown up. I wasn't just a friendly face, a cashier at a local store. People knew me, I was being interviewed by college students and news reporters about my life and so many volunteers and staff looked up to me and relied on me for help and guidance. That level of celebrity as an introverted empath is not something that I want as a normal part of my life and because of that, I fear the consequences of what my life would be like if this book blew up and became popular, or if just a few people who didn't know my real truth suddenly knew my truth.
Is this just normal for anybody writing a book about their life or do I have real concern because of the nature of my life? I would love to read your feedback because I am struggling so much. I have written over 20 pages so far and have 34 chapters/topics to discuss. I'm going to combine many of them so I don't have a 100 chapter book. My life is a story and I felt that I finally had to write it down on paper to tell it. I am a psychic empath growing in many ways and I simply wish to tell my story in a way that I know people will listen, by reading. Otherwise, no one else cares about my life and my struggles.
