This is kind of an extension to Goals for this blog and why I blog at all.
I write either on here on in my journal as I need to get some feelings out of me that I don’t want to tell other people about. I am quite a shy, reserved person in real life and I have problems being honest about my life and the things I do and so having an outlet like this is useful for me.
I write to reflect on choices I have made.
I write to try and gain new perspective on problems. Sometimes when I write down all my worries and thoughts they don’t actually seem as bad as they do when they’re inside my head.
I write to try and connect with other people. I am lonely at times, I love human connections and so I write online to try and find people similar to me. I think the internet is a wonderful thing that if used correctly can be a power for good. It is possible to talk to and reach people from all over the world with it, which is amazing.
I write for attention sometimes, I admit it, I’m human!
I write to share my ideas and knowledge with people. I’m in my 30s, I have been through a lot in my life: marriage, divorce, mental health problems, relationship breakdowns, childbirth, parenting, abortions….quite a lot that I feel I can maybe help other people with.
I write so that I have a voice. I have a lot that goes on inside my head sometimes and I need to get it out. This helps me.
Why do you all write?
