I have been struggling with this issue since I “came out” as a writer . My greatest fear is that someone will read my work and make it all about them. And it HAS happened a couple times. It sucks and it makes you not want to write from the heart. I think I have written a few articles on the topic after my mother read into something I wrote, and the fallout is still occurring ( I think?) You just need to turn that fear off in your head, and remember why you write. “Those who matter don’t mind, and those who mind don’t matter” -Dr. Suess
