Hello, nice people!
Lately I started thinking about what writing really is… This is because I noticed some interesting phenomenon in my body during and after I write an article.
Let’s start with the beginning… what is writing?
According to the EnglishCLUB:
“Writing” is the process of using symbols (letters of the alphabet, punctuation and spaces) to communicate thoughts and ideas in a readable form.
So, writing is a form of communication, right? I say something to you and you understand what I’m trying to say. And for us, bloggers, it is actually more important than it is to other people. Because we find some form of emotional impact in this.
What does this mean?
It means we somehow found the Holy Grail. Why? Because we found a way to express our feelings. Just like painters paint. In my opinion, writing is a form of expressing our feelings.
Do you know that for some people it is almost impossible to express any feelings because their upbringing thought them it is better to repress feelings? And where do you think this leads to?
Honestly, I think writing is a necessity. Because we all have thousands of thoughts and some of them bugs us so much we barely function throughout the day. And it is really helpful to take them out of our head, put them in a somehow logical form and then view them from a third-party perspective. It’s the only way to not taking it personally.
We are actually blessed, as bloggers. We can take out our thoughts and view them externally. Something most people can’t. They have confusing thoughts bouncing around their heads all day long.
Actually, this is why social media and YouTube work so well. People get distracted from their own thoughts and ideas all day long (this is actually what one of my ex-es used to do all day long just to run away from his thoughts).
Maybe for us writing is a hobby. But the impact is having is so much more important than a hobby. Our mental sanity might depend of it.
