For My Sanity

Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose or paint can manage to escape the madness, melancholia, the panic and fear which is inherent in a human situation.

-Graham Greene

It’s no secret that I love to write.  

Writing is my therapy, my art, my creative outlet.  

When I write I am less crazy.  I’m always a little crazy, but when I don’t write I feel completely crazy.  

Writing helps me make sense of the world and my existence, especially when nothing makes sense.  

I write hoping to make some kind of difference in this world.

I write to inspire others the way other artists inspire me.

I write because, it reminds me of where I’ve been and transports me to a place of beauty and peace.  

I feel alive when I write, like my life means something, like I truly exist and matter in this world.  I write to say I was here, I existed and this is my story.  

What do you do that you are passionate about?  Why?

 

Thanks for the inspiration, Christian.  http://cristianmihai.net/2012/10/14/why-i-write/
