Writing to Cope With Our Emotions:

Someone once told me “The last three months have been an up and down elevator for me mentally and physically. There are days when hopping out of bed in the mornings are rough and it’s difficult to lighten up when someone you love deeply was within an inch or two near death from a car accident. Someone you have shared two years of your life with and worry every second of every day that they are safe and sound. From God’s blessings to all of family and friends, he is still with us.

When there are days I don’t hear from that loved one, it takes an emotional turmoil on me. I begin to process that everything we endured months in our relationship before were my fault to the point which we were suffering many doubts and heartbreaks.

I turned to writing as a form of a coping mechanism to hide the sadness underneath my smile no matter where I go, no matter what I do and no matter how busy I become. We all have the sadness beneath us and some don’t recognize how much we are willing to sacrifice our lives and love we have for others. However, we in turn don’t love or nurture ourselves in a healthy manner. When I look around to see individuals moving or talking, there is that one individual standing in the center of a crowd screaming for help on the inside but letting everything on the outside bother them to no end.

We should never allow anyone define how we should feel, how much we should give up just because we are willing to care and love others no matter the heartache we endure on a journey together or separately.”

Life is one long journey and we must make each memory with our loved ones count because tomorrow is never promised. Writing as a coping mechanism helps us relieve the anguish we encounter every step of the way. Through God’s grace and blessings, he will ensure we stand with our loved ones until we are called to go home with them and rejoice in the spacious sky above the ground with everlasting love, laughter and tears of joy.

As a blogger, the emotions we write with our personal stories activates our creative side starting on the right hemisphere of the brain and the creativity begins to flow. Meaning that we are able to write with passion when we become overemotional over someone who we care about the most.
