    Healing Motives

    I was told today that writing about my personal experiences, emotions and struggles, when they involve friends or family members is wrong, that I'm exposing their mistakes and flaws online to the public, that I'm 'airing dirty laundry', even though I never use names and don't...

    I have kept a journal since I was 9, and I have a bout 30 so far! I write to heal, to get past my issues. EP has helped greatly too.

    Suddenly I feel the rug pulled from under me. Everything I've thought I was is gone and there's only a woman left who is just growing old, who is at others beck and call, and never could really live, no matter how hard I tried! At least I gave it a shot.

    I only ever write when my emotions are too much

    to contain. They flow out the ends of my fingers onto the page with a burning urge to escape before I explode. Occasionally in my life, I have written from happiness or because I have felt inspired by a prompt. More often, however, it has been from anger or sadness or...
