Therapeutic writing: how can you be useful

Write your story if you want to make peace with your life and have more awareness

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.
writing is therapeutic

Writing is therapeutic. There are no doubts.

Working on your past and your life vision, narring oneself and creating the future, is a great therapy: heals blocks, fears, helps us to be aware of ourselves.If we think about “narrative medicine”. it helps the patients to feel better but it also helps physicians to have a better, deeper approach because they know the story of this person who cares.

Telling your story is a great therapy, writing your story is a precious gift you do to yourself. We need to regain lightness, to see things clearly, to reflect on the heart of things. When you write about yourself you can see your existence more goalfully.

If you see the way you did see also the people who accompanied you and the gifts that they did to you.

By writing, make peace with your life.

How can you start writing yourself? Start collecting your memories: photos, objects, thoughts, words that remember your childhood. Think of the places you’ve lived in: homes, gardens, attics, kitchens, classrooms. You will see how many things will emerge of you and your life
