Give it a Try: Put it in Writing
If there is something weighing on your mind, it can be helpful to put it on paper. Consider keeping a journal, writing a letter to someone (that you may or may not send), or even authoring a story. Taking the time to write things down can provide a different, and often helpful, outlet for working through your thoughts. It isn’t necessarily about what you are writing, but rather the process of doing so. Keep in mind that no one ever has to read what you write. Sometimes this complete privacy can afford you the freedom to “speak” your mind more than you ever have in the past. Next time you are having a difficult time with something, pick up a pen. You may be surprised by how much better you feel.
