The Joy of Words: Why Writing Brings Me Happiness

I love to write, and frankly I’d feel lost without it.

I’ve always found joy in putting my thoughts onto paper or typing away on a keyboard. Writing is something that brings me immense happiness, and I wanted to share a little bit about why that is.

First of all, writing is like therapy for me.

It allows me to process my emotions and make sense of the world around me. When I write, I feel like I’m in control, and I can explore my deepest fears and insecurities without any fear of judgment or retribution. It’s a safe space where I can just let everything out in any form I want. Whether that be in a form of a story, article or blog post. I get to express myself from all corners of my mind. 

Writing is also helpful when I need to sort through complex emotions. Sometimes my emotions are more complex than just feeling happy or sad. For example, I might feel a mix of anger, guilt, and sadness all at the same time. When I try to talk about these emotions with someone else, it can be hard to articulate exactly what I’m feeling. But when I write, I can take my time to sort through my emotions and put them into words. I can create a narrative that helps me understand why I’m feeling this way and what I need to do to address it.

Sometimes this brings up dirty cobwebs from the past and can be a challenging experience. However, writing reveals myself to myself and makes it a more revealing experience for me. 

Once or twice I’ve experienced realisations through my creative writing too. When my writing is flowing, I come up with dialogue and descriptions which in the strangest way, are displaying my feelings – my state of mind.

It can be a scary experience but I’ve noticed that this is one of the main ways that Ive begun to heal over the years.

But writing isn’t just cathartic – it’s also a creative outlet. There’s something about the process of finding just the right words to express a complex idea or emotion that feels incredibly satisfying. It’s like solving a puzzle, and when everything clicks into place, it’s like magic. Building characters, developing plotlines or structuring an article. I get to work with all sorts of writing styles and there is never a boring day, as every story, character and article is different.

Another thing I love about writing is the connection it creates with others. Whether I’m sharing my writing with friends, family, or even strangers online, there’s a sense of satisfaction in knowing that my words have resonated with someone else. Writing can be a powerful tool for building connections and empathy, and I feel lucky to be a part of that process. The fact that I can help people in any way from my writing gives me comfort. Comfort that knowing what I am doing is helping others and I strive to do that everyday.

Writing is such an amazing tool for so many reasons. For one, it really forces you to take a good, hard look at your own biases and assumptions. When you’re sitting down to write something, you have to confront those preconceptions head-on, and consider new perspectives and ideas that you might not have thought about before. It’s definitely not always comfortable or easy, but it’s such a valuable process of learning and growth. I’m personally really grateful that I have writing as a tool to help me on that journey!

So, there you have it – a little bit about why writing brings me so much joy. Whether I’m writing for myself or for others, I find immense satisfaction in the art of crafting words. I owe so much to writing with how much it has helped me, and I am so grateful to be writing this to you now.

By sharing the happiness that words bring me, I hope to ignite your passion for writing. We all have a story to tell, and I can’t wait to see what you create once you pick up that pen or start typing away. Who knows, in the process, you may even uncover a new side of yourself. So don’t be afraid to embrace the power of words and let your creativity soar!
