Therapy

It has been quite a journey for me, i am still learning of course but it gives me great joy to be able to post what i write. I have doubted myself for too long (i still do sometimes), constantly telling myself i shouldn’t bother because i wasn’t brave enough you see. I always believed nobody wants to read my crap (not putting it lightly) YES! I am not sure what changed my mind but few months ago, i found myself back here and i started typing, i typed, published and it felt so good. It felt so damn good.

I made a great discovery that day, i realized my mind became at peace and i felt so light. It didn’t matter what i wrote, all that mattered was the satisfaction i got. Writing is therapeutic for me and i believe i am not the only one that feels this way. How has writing affected you? what have you discovered about yourself from writing? or better still, what is your form of therapy?

  1. Aww girlie, I am so happy to read this post. Writing, truly is therapeutic.

    Let me share my little experience here. The first time I ever wrote anything and posted it on cyber space was after a heartbreak. It was a poem. I had been so in love with this person, it broke my heart to imagine life without him. The only way out of that situation was to write out my pain. I found healing in writing my truth and even with the fear of people reacting negatively to it, I still went ahead to share it.

    Sharing it eventually turned out to be a blessing, contrary to what I expected. As my poem made a lot of people to open up about their individual experiences. They eventually encouraged me to keep writing and ever since I started writing, I haven’t had cause to regret that decision.

    Writing is therapeutic, and it’s truly a way out of emotional and almost every kind of problem. Writing is freedom and there is a kind of power you wield as a writer. You are kinda like a Demi God, cos you drag people into the center of your experience, and manipulate their emotions. Yes you are that powerful!

    Here’s to many amazing write ups from you. I look forward to reading them.

    Cheers!
