Writing often gives us the clarity we need to put pain behind us.
Writing can help release us from our ruminating thoughts. We’re better able to let go, once we’ve created a permanent record that we can return to, at any time, without keeping the pain ever-present in our mind.
Lastly, writing prevents others from falling prey to the same misfortune, and helps them recover their dignity if they do.
