I write because…

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?
