I honestly do not know where I would be without writing. It has definitely been my therapy for depression but it has also been a way to express the many shades of my heart. Feelings. Emotions. Sometimes I think I have more emotions and feelings than the average person!
When I am feeling down, anxious, happy, in love, scared, etc., I write about it. Writing has helped me gather my thoughts in a way I could not do orally. It has also been my escape from reality. I sometimes write about what I think other people are going through or things I dream about.
Sharing my thoughts with others is new for me. I have been writing poems and stories for over 25 years but 99% of them have never been read by anyone before. I kept all my poems hidden away. It wasn't until I started sharing them with others that I felt a sense of release from a lot of pain I held inside. It was freedom. It definitely was scary at first (I felt naked) but I know I am not the only one out there that needs freedom. My hope is that my blog will inspire others to find their place of freedom and share that with us all!
