While you might start out unsure of where you’re going, by the time the final full stop drops clarity has generally happened.

By showing how commonplace depression was even though my narrative wasn’t, I didn’t beg or ask for acceptance but set out to reclaim it, one story at a time.

The more we talk about what hurts, the less it does; writing can transform harrowing pain into a dull ache.

If you are on the fence about dipping your toes into the waters of confessional writing, please consider the relief your piece might offer to others. Not only will you unburden yourself, but your words will likely also allow fellow humans to do the same.
