Writing can be a great way to express one’s emotions and process through pain. Journaling is an amazing coping skill. Over the years, many people have found comfort in scrawling their feelings onto paper.
Yet, having a response from others is usually missing when you write. Blogging makes it possible to write out your feelings but also receive feedback. Putting yourself and your thoughts out on the internet is frightening. However, the support of followers and commenters along with the benefits of writing make this a great coping skill.
Today, I started another blog that focuses on travel. This is an area that I both love and hate because it challenges my aspergers and anxiety while fulfilling my love of exploration and learning. By writing this, I was able to express my love of England and remember good times. Hopefully, putting it in a blog will help others to learn more about the topic and inspire them to try something new. You can find my first post on Traveling by 5s here.
Deciding to start a blog can be stressful and frightening. The benefits of support, expressing one’s feelings, and gaining advice from commenters makes this a wonderful coping skill that I (and many others) have grown from greatly.
