Self-Realization September- Addiction
Addiction. Let's talk about addiction. If I put it in the words of Ocean Voung “It’s like surviving a car crash and still walking from that car crash.”
I definitely agree that poetry or writing, in general, is addictive. I have seen many influencers commenting on writing is healing but very rarely do I see people talking about why it heals. In fact, I think writing hurts before it heals. It's putting out your vulnerability in a piece of document. And publishing it online or for money. Because let's be honest most writers aren't that rich and need to fill their stomachs. It's just that this September I got the time to analyze why writing is hurting more than it is healing for me.
It's essential to have these conversations with yourself and realize what's happening once in a while. I'm obsessed with perfection and I tried but I can't do anything about it. I realized that the sooner I understand it's how I am and move on is better. Now I want my writing to be perfect to put online right now. It's not how I started. When I started out it was an empty road and I didn't know what I was doing. Eventually, writing is healing because we vent out what we feel and understand what caused the same.
