Write… Write… Write…

Human beings are the only species who have a highly developed intellect. All beings communicate… But it is only humans who can process the information and stimuli before communicating. They have the distinction to think and respond unlike all other beings which instinctively react.

Writing is the best form of communication that comes in handy to us in many ways. One may use this art of writing in all states, stages and situations in life to make it more meaningful.

You write a diary or journal to communicate with yourself. This helps you to always feel being in the company of someone. There is always someone for you to share your thoughts. In Transaction Analysis, Eric Berne explains that every individual longs for strokes (recognition) in life. Not having someone to recognise your presence and share your thoughts can lead to aloofness and even depression. Writing a journal or diary is one of the best ways to overcome this. You are your own companion and through writing, you give positive strokes to yourself continuously.

This is also a very useful tool for you to understand yourself and your thoughts better… It helps to bring clarity to your thought process and helps in decision-making. When you are confused, you write to bring clarity to your thoughts; and when you have clarity, you write to communicate your thoughts, ideas and feelings to others.

When you are angry you can write to vent out your anger. (When you write and tear off the paper after pouring out all your anger into it… You are equipped with a more stable and peaceful state of mind). Similar action can help you in other bad emotional states as well. When you are happy, you may still write to share your Joy with others.

The list of benefits is endless… To know them all… Start writing…

  1. My own experience with writing has been very positive and useful in organizing my thought processes. I am in total agreement with the concept expressed in the post that one can write anytime to express any of our emotions and even find resolution to any conflicting thoughts or ideas. As a teacher, I started my class by having my students write for five minutes in their journals. They were asked to write answer to a question of the day posed everyday based on the current lesson topic. This not only clarified their understanding of the difficult scientific concept but also gave me clues to understand where my students were in their comprehension.
    My late mother kept a journal since her childhood. This journal contained quotes and wisdom from books she read, in three languages. I discovered it by accident and I treasure it tremendously. Her journal helps me understand what my mother was reading and thinking while growing up. I also like writing about different subjects that interests me. I find this practice very healing. I believe that when we write, we are thoughtful and reflective but not always so when we are speaking.
    Writing could be a daunting task if one is not used to writing. But our schools do a good job by requiring students to write research papers or essays from very early age. This is very helpful because it teachedps them correct grammar, format and construction of the write up.
