“Words are where most change begins.” ― Brandon Sanderson, Words of Radiance
There is something particularly cathartic about writing.
You sit yourself down and without much effort can upload all your thoughts onto paper or a computer, just letting go of everything you have been holding in for the day until finally, after minutes or hours, you are free.
We aren’t truly taught about the benefits that writing can bring to our lives, we simply learn to write so we can pass tests, the worst possible motivator.
If I were to best describe why I write, it is to think.
To figure out why I think the way I do.
And also to just feel things.
Many of us have trouble expressing our emotions, and the act of writing them down is a much needed release. We all need some form of meditation which allows us to self reflect, and writing can be that for many of us.
Food for thought folks.
