I find solace in writing. I can write what’s on my mind, tell my story, share my experiences, and the secrets that need to be let out. Writing opens my heart. I’m able to feel the love, anger, pain, joy, sorrow, gratitude, regrets – whatever is present in the moment – and put it on the paper. I can write anything. just express especially when I have problems that I feel my heart is going to burst out. I resort to writing to express what I felt..
Writing provides a resting place during times of grief… like taking a short rest, visiting a different place altogether than your problem. I can put down my burden, even for a short while. In fact, writing soothes my torn heart due to problems that are beyond control.
Putting your thoughts and feelings in writing is an important healing tool. Writing leads to a therapeutic release of the emotional energy that hinders us from moving forward. There’s something about baring your soul to yourself through writing that feels so comforting. The physical act of writing – the flow of thoughts from your head, down through your hand, and on to paper – is a releasing process in itself.
We can tell ourselves where to look for hope when we write. This includes those times when you think you can’t take another step. Somehow, when you write about this, the picture starts to emerge where you see yourself taking that step. You see falling and getting up and being held all as part of life.
Sharing one’s personal story is a huge emotional investment, but it is also the most satisfying feeling in the world. Coming up with ideas is easy, but writing gave me the courage to execute them, to actually make those ideas real. Penning down your thoughts is the best way to channel your ideas, or else there are chances of them getting lost in the crowded consciousness of the mind.
But, there is a different solace in writing, it is more of being in your own closet of secretive thoughts, and you just write so that few folks who actually believe your thoughts and works, tend to read and relate to it and try to know you better. Writing was one of the hobbies which made me more confident, because in the past, I never cared what opinions would do to me and I wrote everything boldly.
