What do you get from writing?

Hi folks! Thanks for checking in!

Have you often heard this question? Well, since I was in college, I have been receiving that kind of question. Sometimes, I just wondered why they were so interested about my life and what I do. Incognizant of the benefits of writing, some of them purely thought that this diversion was a tedious one, and it wouldn’t bring any good to anyone.

Let us admit it. We are surrounded by these types of people, they may be our coworkers, friends, or even family members. Because of their common misconception about the said fad is, we are often called as “weird and waster”. It is somehow painful to learn that many are just scowling at our efforts so we have to accept the fact that we can’t really please everyone.

Here, I will share three things that I get from writing. This may resonate to you, or you may also come up with your short list after reading this.

1. Writing improves my vocabulary and communication skills.

English is my second language. Since I’m not a native speaker, I’ve been often struggling in expressing my arguments and thoughts due to vocabulary insufficiencies and insecurities. Confronted with that reality, I have started to improve myself through extensive reading, researching, and writing. Through a regular practice, one can really grow into a writer. I may not be an expert or sage in this field, but I’m so glad I can at least express my ideas without any worries.

2. Writing makes me free.

I am what I write. Based on my writings, you might have a closer hint of my personality. Honestly, I’m a moderately timid person, but of course, if you’ll start a conversation, I’ll surely join. What is good about writing is we’ll be able carve not only what we feel, but also those things we can’t confidently say aloud. Here, I’m neither afraid to be judged nor to be ignored. I am just being myself which makes me totally free.

3. Writing makes me smile.

We might have various reasons why we write, but our common denominator is we’re pleased in what we do. It’s somehow hard to accomplish something if you don’t really like it, right? In my case, I just feel happy every time I post something here, whether it is a short poem or a plain rumination. Aside from the views, comments, and likes I receive every day, knowing someone from the other parts of the world reads my work makes me more exhilarated and gratified.

How about you? What do you get from writing?

I’m excited to read them. God bless you!

    1. Yes! Writing is so therapeutic for me! I also like to write about my current events and emotions too so that when I look back on my writings in the future, my future self can read them and read about the good times from the past. I’m pretty I’ll forget everything that is happening now in 5-10 years. I call all of my writings my time capsule

    1. I can feel that we share the same views when it comes to writing. Hope you continue inspiring the world through your powerful poetry and stories. Let your words be their light in the midst of darkness. Go girl!

  3. Writing makes me reflect on what’s important to me. Why do I like certain things? Why do I feel some activities are a waste of time? What makes some experiences richer than others? What friendships are the most rewarding/draining? In the end, writing helps me live my best life.

  4. For me, writing is part of the process of digesting experience — it has other functions similar to the ones you describe, but digestion via writing is an important key for me to getting the most out of life.
