    I Write Everything Down

    I write my feelings down. I write my loved ones down. I write my experiences down. I write letters to the people that don't understand me, without sending them most of the time. I write when I'm happy, I write when I'm upset, I write when I'm angry, I write when I'm bored, I...

    inferior to the prime,

    see no evil but feel the discomfort, the rowdy arrive and sometimes the hard done workers, it's okay to agree it's not okay, it will stop, it has to! just envy 24 hours away on a plane, until then just wait.... I ******* hate the night.

    Finding My Words

    For months I have been at a loss for words. I don't even know what's wrong exactly. I want to write and express myself but every time I try to confide in someone or even write in my journal, everything blurs and at the same time I have nothing and too much to express, and nothing...

    Groups Without Stories

    If you look at my stories, you will notice very quickly that I always have a chunk of groups without stories. No, it's not about laziness of even procrastination. Writing is therapy for me, it really is. There are some days when I wake up in a darker or more silent mood than...

    Having a Confidante

      It just irritates me that you have to spend a bunch of money to see a therapist who sympathetically says, "It's alright, you'll get better, all it takes is time", or the one who says "I know where you are coming from", even though they don't. I hate how...

    It Takes Away The Stress

    Let me just say I love writing amazing stories not just because I'm an amazing person but also for me it's a good stress reliever. I can write down what ever comes to mind and express my amazing thoughts, and I feel free to tell people how much I rock and how much they suck. When...

    Writing Is Relief

    I had a counselor ask me to keep a diary. He told me I wouldn't see what I was looking for at first but after a few months I would notice a pattern and see what was really going on with me at that time. I found it to be very therapeutic because it helped get the feelings I was...

    I've always kept some kind of Journal or wrote Poetry... it does do something for some of us! If anything its good to get things off your chest,if nothing else! When I couldn't talk b/c I didn't know how to explain all I was feeling...I wrote poems!

    Journal Writing & Sentence Completion

    I find journal writing a very effective way of spontaneously unloading detrimental emotions that we have kept within ourselves bottled up. I find it particularly useful when I have a certain situation or issue bothering me, which will probably need some honest, rational thinking...

    I can't always say how I'm feeling.

    This isn't from lack of want but rather from the consequences that could result. I write to express my emotions. I feel like I could explode if I don't.

    ~ and My Circle ~

     Writing for me is very healthy. It lets me know what I'm feeling, thinking at any moment. I can go back to stories I have written & see how far I've come or how far I still need to travel. My friends here comment & give encouragement to me which is a bonus &...

    Writing...

    my words are my weapons, my thoughts, my insecurities, dreams, hopes, my life.  Sometimes writing is the ONLY way I can figure things out. I start to write and I am instantly calmed. At times I spend hour upon hour just rambling on and on in my journal. To be an outsider...

    An Escape That Sees Through Walls

    It is my therapy. I have disappeared in the

    world of writing when i was a child to now. When you cannot talk to someone the way you want to, writing it out in a journal or a letter really helps. It takes the thoughts out of your mind, and in front of you, so you can see what is going on, and learn from it each time you do...
