What writing has done for me

Writing has existed for a very very long time. It’s a way of communication. It’s a way of sharing knowledge. But it’s also so much more than that.

Writing makes me feel calm…at ease…it allows me to think…to gather my thoughts. It helps me to put beautiful experiences into words.

Many people struggle to write because they believe they just don’t have the inborn talent or as soon as they sit down to write all their creativity fades away.

There’s an interesting study that shows that we struggle to use our ‘right’ and ‘left’ brain simultaneously, because the one is trying to be creative and the other is trying to analyse what we have already written. The key thing is to keep on writing. Just don’t stop. Allow the creativity to flow. You can analyse and edit everything once you think you have enough.

There is just something about putting your thoughts on paper. It’s a wonderful way of introspection. In some ways, it helps you understand yourself a bit better.

We all have our ‘talents’ or the things we are good at. Whether we gathered the experience overtime or we were just blessed with incredible skill. We can all do something, but that doesn’t mean we’re necessarily going to be good at it the first time. You will get better with time. But the point is that you will be doing what you want to do, whether you’re good or bad at it. Being bad at something is part of the process. Don’t hide it from the world. They will eventually cheer you on as they see how you get better and better.

Not anyone can be a good writer. But anyone can be a writer.

    1. Exactly! It can be such a powerful thing. Whether it’s an idea or a goal. Just putting something down on paper can change everything.

      And that is more than enough. You, writing in your journal, has served its purpose. If your therapy session is just about writing things down about your day or your thoughts then writing has served its purpose. Thank you for sharing it 🙂 ❤

  1. Your advice about others cheering when someone progresses is spot-on.

    Everyone strives to improve, and seeing another person struggle too is encouraging, actually. Much better that, than having the curtain rise to reveal someone balancing a piano on his nose. We all share in the process, not just in the the end result.

  2. Many people tend to think that they have to have a lot of talent before they will try something. Not true. Even the tiniest spark of talent can be developed into more talent through practice. So the best advice is just start doing it and keep doing it.
