I Write Down My Thoughts

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,816 People

    It might not make sense,

    but this is what I was thinking about a few nights ago: Why is it that the people who you let get close are the ones that end up hurting you the most? Why? They are fully aware that you have trusted them with all you heart, and given them all you have, but they still turn...

    I haven't always been a happy,

    confident person. In fact Im not always a happy, confident person. Long ago, during one of my darkest times, I was really, truly broken and I was lost. Don't want to focus on how I got there, most of us know how we end up in darkness, not all of us know how to move towards the...

    On Writing

    It's never been consistent. I have several journals that I've started, probably since I could begin to write, and have gradually abandoned them. I used to think that if you kept a diary, you HAD to write in it every day, and once I started slipping, the diary seemed tainted and...

    I like to write down my thoughts

    and how I'm feeling, it helps me understand them. usually I write about 3 pages and then I burn the paper because I don't want anyone else to read them.

    Loss... Grief. It isn't always related to death.

    It could be the loss of a friendship, a change in relationships.

    Whenever I find my mind heavy with thoughts I'm

    unable to decipher, putting pen to paper and letting it spill out helps me make sense of them all, kind of like my own personal therapy session. I often get lost in my writing, I don't think when I write I simply let the pen run free guided only by what I believe to be my soul...

    It seems as though the world is a dark

    I Think I Should Write A Book

    A book that contains all the random thoughts I just put down in writing. Including rants, experiences, dreams... Just things you don't see in books, not even in diaries. I'd read that. I don't know if anyone else would.
