Writing taught me a lot about escape.

Isn't it awesome how writing takes you somewhere beautiful that you sometimes forget about what this harsh world has offered? So I write, write and write more. Sometimes I wish I took up any writing course so I will be better at writing.

Whatever it is that I am feeling, I write them down. Encapsulating the emotions in a sentence or two. Most of the time, I end up with a set of sentences. And then I feel okay. It calms me down. I am glad that works for me because writing rather than talking about it is much easy. 

I am very bad at public speaking or even just in a classroom setting. I can't arrange my ideas well. Something that I need to practice, really. Or maybe I just need some self-esteem booster. I don't know. I can talk to a couple of people (maybe one, two or less than 10), though. But I find writing a good sense of communication for me. Because I can say whatever I think is needed and important and whatnot without any interruption from someone during the processing of ideas.

That doesn't mean I don't like conversations. I do love conversing to people and strangers. And that doesn't mean I don't invite criticisms. I get that a lot and I like that I learn from other people's ideas, too. I respect anyone's ideas. 

Maybe I just want to build my ideas well before I deliver them to others, maybe this has something to do with me being obsessive-compulsive, or maybe this has something to do with me being a perfectionist. Whatever the reason is, I'm glad that in writing I can compose my ideas well. Also, it has taught me a lot about escape.


  1. Escaping is significant in our life. In one way or another, it gives us the opportunity to take a breath, to create, and to think about ourselves.

  2. Very well said, Olga. I find those things in writing! :)

  3. Writing is utterly therapeutic and got me through the darkest time of my life when we lost Cameron...

  4. I love the feeling after pouring all my emotions through writing! I'm in love with it :)
