“Put a voice in your hurt and give your tears a sound”
So very often I read an article written by someone who has suffered an angry moment, a pain or a loss.
I wonder sometimes if these people are crying tears as they write their words. Sometimes I am deeply moved even to the point of tears myself. Writing and reading can be so very therapeutic. The therapists at a facility where I was employed as a nurse would have their patients write every day. They also had required reading assignments. Writing is cathartic and reading is distracting in a good way.
Some of the very best, most passionate writing I have ever read came from these clients most often while the instigating event was fresh in their minds. These are very often the folk with the most powerful voice. I am fortunate to have had these people share their work with me. It has aided both my understanding and my capacity for empathy.
KEEP WRITING! KEEP READING!
