Strength in Writing

If you don't know this about me yet, I use writing as a way to express my feelings and emotions. At the start of May 2011, I used it as a creative escape to get away from the stress of school, expectations and a simple way to heal. It was a reassuring method that made the world around me a stable place. I wrote to confront unexpressed feelings. I was able to put together my words more easily in my head. Writing helped me regain some level of confidence when I couldn't use my words conventionally to speak. It forced me to sort through the thoughts, make sense of everything and helped to organize and simplify experiences. It brought some form of sanity as I basically was bottling up everything from life, friends, university, you name it. Just typing away on my laptop made the world less uncertain and more liberating.

That's when I started blogging and writing about topics that interest me. It gave me a sense of control for once and do something that wasn't going to be marked, judged or criticized by people I knew. It was my dear friend Karen who insisted I start and I have her and my drive to thank for it.

With this being said, it's actually important to surround yourself with those who will challenge and inspire you. Friends who aren't happy for you in your achievements or don't care to ask about your life in general, are not worth waiting around for. I've come to realize that and now have friends who are amazing at what they strive to do. I write this for me but also for them. If it wasn't for those who kept pushing me and encouraging me, I wouldn't be where I am today.

 Whether my writing is read or not, I find it rewarding and worth it. You get to share new ideas, stories and connect with unique beings. Most importantly, writing has given me the strength to get back up when things go astray and think happy thoughts.

Why do you write?
