Writing Is My Therapy

writing is my therapy. she releases feelings in me nothing else releases I do not even care if it is poetry, it is the feeling i seek, she is my friend, she cares not what words I use, she releases my sadness, my madness, and every day badness. she eliminates my gloomy days, she excites me, encourages me, and uplifts me she makes me happy, joyful, she keeps me moving, she keeps me wanting to live. she makes me feel playful, she increases my enthusiasm, she is a compulsion. I cannot desert her, any more than she can desert me. we have become one, she and I. She is my tribe. She is my advocate. She has replaced my friends, because she is my bestie. writing is my therapy.

I do not need a therapist, because I have her.

I also have my cartooning, and my painting, and my grandchildren, but writing is totally grabbing my attention right now.

More of an "outlet" for me and a replacement for acting. Interesting that you refer to writing...and not just your muse... as "she". The "therapy" seems to be working quite well for you, Caren.

My writing is a "she" as I never know what wringer she is going to put me through; or what mood she is in. I am a Gemini, so it makes sense to me.

I feel like this about my journal. I have misplaced it some where and I miss her so :)
