The Writing Coach Podcast with Rebecca L. Weber

Aug 17, 2021

Portfolio shame can compound over time when a core belief (such as “I’m not a good enough writer” or “I haven’t made it yet” or “I should have better clips”) pops up every time we complete an assignment.

When we repeat these thought patterns over time, and feel ashamed both of the work we have and haven’t done, it becomes harder to enjoy or appreciate our writing lives.

Even when you’ve done deep mindset work and recognize that these thoughts aren’t factual or helpful, they can still reappear. We need to be vigilant and compassionate when working with portfolio shame.
