Write And Embrace Life With An Optimistic Approach

Aug 17, 2007
In this ruthless world, where our emotions and sentiments hold less value in other people's lives, each day our emotions get hurt and thus these hurt feelings turn into wounds. Our relationships and interactions with others go through turbulence on a daily basis and these situations present us with everyday wounds that stay with us and remain unhealed till they are addressed.

While referring to everyday wounds, what do we actually mean? Sometimes we are scared to come to terms with our fears and we tend to bottle up our hurt feelings, which we don't seem to or don't want to recognize. These develop into hurdles that keep us from achieving our goals, evolving or developing self-esteem and this may eventually lead to frustration, development of negativity and feelings of isolation.

The wounds hidden inside us also decrease our concentration power and hence we are unable to focus and realize our dreams. We can try to cope with our everyday wounds by either choosing to work in integrity or we can choose to play safe and hide our true feelings or fears in an attempt to protect ourselves from getting hurt. Hiding our pain and being untrue to ourselves is a sinful of the greatest kind and hence we are our own worst foe. The easiest way to heal these wounds is by realizing and accepting these hurtful emotions and embarking on a journey of self-improvement.

Healing our emotional wounds will help us move forward and provide us with mental peace, which will eventually lead to inner growth. Healing is a process where we learn to be true to ourselves and face our greatest fears and drawbacks. It provides a new outlook towards life. This healing ritual will thus help you to know yourself better.

One of the most effective low cost methods of healing is writing. Writing is like medicine, which shields us from all that negativity and helps us to find answers to unanswered questions. It is thus an untapped natural healer. Healing wounds is necessary for our mental health and personal growth. While coping with pain, writing can make sense out of confusion. It helps us get in touch with our hidden self, pinpoints the root cause of our agony, and above all by penning down our thoughts, we discover a new friend hidden inside us.

In order to help this healing system work, one must write on a daily basis. Don't believe in the myth that you have to be a good writer to write, it is suggested that the courage to pen down your angst, pain, frustration, desire, innermost thoughts be summoned. The process is really simple. Devote thirty minutes of your valuable time to this activity.

Take a pen and some paper, and start asking yourself the questions that you always wanted to ask. Your prompt may be "Why am I so temperamental these days?" or perhaps "Why was I rude?" and then just let the words flow through your fingers onto the paper. This activity will help you find the answers to all your queries when you read your writings. Give yourself the gift of writing and embrace life with an optimistic approach.
