there is a big difference between explaining and excusing
like for example
getting a bad grade on a test would explain why i was in a bad mood but it would not excuse me for going up to a complete stranger that day and punching them in the face

I never studied acting, yet the first time I auditioned and did a cold reading, I surprised everyone for my honesty and limpidity. They told me I could play any role because I have no walls, I don’t put anything between me and the character I have to play.
It’s already mid-morning, but have you really started writing yet? If you’re procrastinating, it might be because you see your future self as a stranger. Psychologists believe that because we don’t know who we will be years from now, we fail to make good decisions for the long term. Perhaps both your current and future selves can agree you just want to finish that novel already.
