Explaining what happened to us in writing often gives us the clarity we need to put the pain behind us. Once we begin the writing process, it’s necessary to go through the events step by step. We may see interaction and impacts more clearly as we go along.
Writing can help us feel released from the emotional armor that we place around our ruminating thoughts. We’re better able to let go, knowing that we can go back to it at any time without keeping it ever-present in our thoughts.
Last, but not least, writing contributes to the fund of knowledge that prevents others from falling prey or recovering their dignity when they do. It helps to know we weren’t the only one.
