I Find That Writing Is the Best Therapy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 278 People

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I'm a new writer looking

    for some feedback. Growing up in a small lousiana town, every boy grows the same. Same hobbies, same interests, same skills. I didn't grow up that way, I didn't spend time with those boys. I spent time dreaming, sticking to my close circle of friends and no one else. I was never...

    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...

    inferior to the prime,

    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...

    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...

    An Escape That Sees Through Walls

    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...

    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...
