In Serbia there is a saying: “Paper puts up with anything“, in this case would be: “Computer puts up with anything“.
Now seriously, not that this saying was not serious, just if you have some problem, something is bothering you, write it’s head off.
It’s literally like that. When you think about whatever is bothering you, your thoughts are not concentrated only on that, they go around, drift to something else entirely different. Mind works on more then one level all the time, like inner dialog, picture and thinking, all at the same time – did you notice that?! Plus, thinking about it just make it more complicated, rarely gives a result or relief. On a contrary, writing most of the time, gets us right to the main problem – pick point, not just going around in circles. And the best thing is that, after some time, while writing about certain “topic” (don’t like to call it problem), all of the sudden you may feel empty or like you don’t need or want to continue writing, but not cause you are pissed or upset or tired of the “topic”, but cause you really emptied yourself out and feel different, more at ease, like, “OK, this is it, lets do something else”. Like it gives you new strength. Like that topic is not so important anymore as it was at the beginning. Like that’s the end of it – no need to be upset anymore.
I’m not sure I can explain, you have to try for yourself. The fact that it works for me, doesn’t mean it will necessarily work for you too. I know it does work for many people I’ve talked too. We all experience things differently, but give it a try and see what happens.
Muahaaa and shine like the star that you are!
