Many times I have heard someone say, “I am going to let them know what I think.” Yet, they never do. They either continue to complain or just drop the subject. There are many ways to express yourself but, writing is by far the best and easiest way. You think about what you are going to write before you put it down on paper. This gives you the opportunity to evaluate about the words you select. The choice of word usage can be very powerful. Everyone that I know of that gives a speech, always writes down how they are going to communicate their ideas to the group they face. That is what writing does. If you don’t write and just say what comes to mind, you don’t have the chance to change the words you just used. Writing gives you that opportunity.
Since I have started writing on this web site, I have read lots of articles about different subjects on here. It has expanded my vision into things that I didn’t understand before. It has given me a chance to see how compassionate people are about certain subjects. It has educated me about things that I didn’t know about. It has allowed me to in some cases see the other side of things. Now, I do not agree with a lot of things written on this site but, it has given me different insight into things.
Viewing what others have written has inspired me to write myself on things that spur my interest. Some of my material has been rejected for one reason or another. That doesn’t stop me though. If it is bad, then it needs to be dumped. If I get a 3 star, I feel that it has some meaning to someone. It would be nice to get a little more money for a project but, that isn’t the reason I write. I write because it gives a chance to express myself. Expression is like an art. Some people like to create and express. Some people just want to try and get a point across about about something that matters. All individuals have something that they care about. It can be anything from health care to animal care. It could be a strong beleif such as Abortion. Everyone has a niche. Writing is a great way to express your beliefs.
I am not saying that what you write will be accepted by everyone or anyone for that matter. It does give you a form of expression though. It gives you an opportunity of feedback so that you can see what others think about your thoughts on a certain subject. Then you can re-evaluate your own ideas again. You might even change how you think about a certain topic.
This is why writing is so important in our way of life. Can you imagine not being able to write? Can you see how difficult it is for illiterate individuals? They struggle to express themselves except by verbal communication. If you don’t have this problem, write. Take the time and write. Express your feelings. You will find yourself growing in my more ways than one. “Knowledge is Power.”
