I was thinking about how much expression helps people. As in, it's like therapeutic and cathartic and you get feedback from other people sometimes. And then I got to thinking about how writing in particular might help people. Some people say they express themselves better through writing than through speech. I wonder if it's because when you write, you feel like your thoughts are more private at the moment you write them, or because talking makes you have to think more than writing? I'm not sure which is the case for me. I may not be asking this question clearly because I don't always express my thoughts clearly in writing but I'm practicing that.
