What Writing Teaches You About Yourself

Writing helps you figure out what you believe and what you want.

Writing helps you figure out what you believe and what you want.

If you want to know who you are and what you believe try writing it down.

It doesn’t have to be on paper nor does it have to be saved, shared or shown to anyone.

It just has to be written down and read by you.

Write honestly.

Write truthfully.

Just write.

Tell yourself why you are who you are. Share the words that explain your philosophy on life, religion and politics and you might be surprised by what you find.

Sometimes less is more. No 800, 1200 0r 2,500 word posts today. Just the words and picture above and maybe some links below.

    Interesting thought.

      @Lardavbern:disqus I have found it to be a very interesting exercise, especially when it comes to more serious topics. When I write about why I believe XYZ it becomes very clear to me if there is substance to my choice or if it is just some arbitrary decision.

      For example I love LA teams, always have and always will in large part because when I was a kid if you wanted to go to a ball game it was the Dodgers or Lakers.

      And because of that I automatically rooted against the Celtics and Giants. It is not logic, just coincidence.

      If I would have been born somewhere else it would have been a different team.
