Find your Voice, Share your story, Heal your Life

I started blogging about seven years ago. My intent was to work through some personal issues I was having. I wanted to understand my part in all of it and perhaps to grow from understanding. In writing, I eventually found my own voice through blogging and I began to openly share my stories with other Readers. I noticed that I wasn’t alone out here because there are many of you that feel exactly the same as I do.

The feeling I get when I write about something that I am internally exploring is almost like going to a therapy session with a professional counselor. I write from my perspective, but in the interest of personal growth I also do a lot of research and I ask other people in the same situation, or perhaps in a position of experience and knowledge, many questions. I include my findings and sometimes link back to reputable sources so you can do your own investigation.

Writing has enabled me to open my mind and to be prepared to be wrong sometimes when all of the evidence is there.  Yes, I like being right, but when I’m wrong and I can accept that, I grow exponentially healthier and happier. 

If I only wrote from my own head, I would never learn anything and I wouldn’t feel better. It is this reaching out to others that has significantly changed my life.

Writing about people, and issues with people, that make you uncomfortable does take some guts. I won’t lie and tell you that any of this has been an easy thing to do and there are days when I click that Publish button and cringe a little wondering who will read it and decide not to like me for it. Then I remind myself that if that’s the case, then it wasn’t someone I truly needed to be connected to anyway, and I move on.

I tell folks that come to me in Comments, and through Private Messages, that writing about my stories and my life has been the best therapeutic method I have ever participated in that was readily available and free. I encourage everyone to sit down at that keyboard, or pick up that pen and start getting it out of your head and on a screen or a piece of paper where you can see it and read it out loud.  Reach out to others that have the same issues and ask questions. Read everything you can get your hands on and weight the differences of opinions until you find what works for you. Share your thoughts with the rest of us so we can all get on with this thing called Life in a much better place today than yesterday.

Find your voice.

Share your story.

Heal your life.

    I agree. I have been blogging for about two years and still don’t have 100 followers, but I still do it. I, like you, feel it is almost like therapy. It’s nice to put your thoughts down for others to read and react to one way or another.
