Writing is the Best Healing Potion

Does writing ever heal your wounds and brighten your soul?

I’ll go completely insane if I don’t write.  I’m already crazy so I don’t want to add any more fuel to my crazy fire.

Einstein was definitely crazy but can you imagine how nuts he would be if he never wrote out his mathematical problems?

He would’ve been locked away somewhere in a padded room if he never wrote out a single mathematical problem.

When it comes to writing, I must write to release my craziness onto the page or I’ll lose my marbles like a lunatic on Speed and Red Bull.

My mind fills with unnecessary garbage of self-damaging thoughts if I don’t turn to my ultimate outlet of expression, writing.

Writing is my soul revival that extinguishes the negative thoughts from my mind and brightens my world in unexpected ways.

When I write, my mind becomes at peace with a sharp clarity to overcome my struggles by sharing my story with the world.

For so many years, I’ve locked away all my thoughts inside because my way of dealing with hardship was to avoid the problems I faced with silence and passive aggression.

I was Drama Avoider Extraordinaire, which only encouraged me to avoid everything else.  I solved problems by rolling them under the rug until I trip and fall on my face.

When something serious happens, I’m going to do what is right no matter what.  If you do something seriously wrong, it’s not my job to protect your image by rolling it under the rug.

Writing has taught me that the best way to deal with your problems is to express yourself and not assume your problems will disappear through silence.

Writing is my outlet; I cannot stop writing and maintain my sanity at the same time.

What is your best healing potion of expression and what have you learned from using this healing potion?

  • I shudder in terror at the thought of Einstein never writing a mathematical equation! I’m with you, writing is my outlet. Of course, solving a simple physics equation and also soothe the soul.

      It would soothe my soul if my mathematics skills would allow me to solve a simple physics equation. It was nice to hear from you, Jennifer!

  • Great post, Robbie! Interesting, well written, and funny, it brings the point across of how healing, among ohter things, writing is.
    In my post, earlier, I touched on the topic “Why I wrote my book….”

    I did not put it so interestingly as you, but I do understand how you feel, because I too wrote to heal my life after a major hip revision.

    I write to heal and connect with my feelings, to understand and connect to the world and others. I write to touch other souls, to share my self and my memories, to keep in touch with my guides and my soul, to clear confusing thoughts and vent anger or frustration.
    I enjoyed reading a varied version of my reasons for writing, Thanks for sharing!
    Blessings and Light! And please, keep writing! We don’t want a mad writer running among us! 🙂

      Thanks, Katina! Your comments are always great.

  • Never thought of it this way, but I can’t help myself, I have to write. Even when journaling for myself, it is an outlet. Great post.

      Thanks, Joan! I love to hear from my fellow Tribers.

    Well said, Robbie. I am experiencing the same thing. Writing has become cathartic and a necessity. In the process further healing is taking place and opportunity given in the sharing for others to say, “You too?”. Keep up the great work. We need your voice and we don’t want your sanity to be called into question! Blessings 🙂
