I am an introvert and introverts by nature do a lot of deep thinking and observation.
Sometimes Often, I need to process my thoughts in other ways than mulling them over in my head. Sometimes I talk about them, but since I am mostly a stay-at-home mom and my husband works from home, the only person I often have to talk to is him, and, I love him, but let’s be honest, sometimes he just can’t listen like I need him to and he certainly doesn’t have the capacity to always hear and understand my musings. So I have come to love to write as another way to process. And sometimes I find that my writings resonate with others. Sometimes others can identify with what I am thinking and feeling and that is rewarding. Also, at times I gain a different perspective after I have written things out and it helps me to look at those thoughts in a new way.
So I write…to process these thoughts in my head and to connect with others and to gain a new perspective, or expand upon my original one.
