    Do you ever use writing as a coping method?

    Hi, what a really good question. I certainly use it to get things off my chest - especially if there is something making me angry. I feel writing tends to get all the anger out, but it seems to be a positive thing, rather than it leading to more anger or upset. So in this sense, then yes, writing helps me to cope with anger.

    Writing is a great way to get things off your chest that might be weighing you down. It can also be used as a tool to sort out a problem that has been nagging away at you.

    This is a good question. Yes writing can be helpful in coping up with the shortfalls that you may have. Writing is the best possible way to express your views, thoughts and share your ideas. When you recheck your writing you may rectify certain mistakes that you may have committed in your previously written script. Isn't this a way of coping with the mistakes that you have commited? This also helps you to improve your own writing skills.

    I definitely use writing as a coping method. If I'm going through something I just have to get it written down.

    Yes,yes,yes writing is very therapeutic.It's perfect for expressing exactly how you're feeling and getting it off your chest.
    Afterwards you can keep it,delete it,tear it up or whatever you like but you've expressed it,released it and now you can move on.

    Great question ; )

    Yes, absolutely. Writing in a private journal is where I can express what I really think!

    I find it so important to put difficult experiences down on paper, it stops me carrying all the worries around in my head...

    Thanks so much for the responses, I have to agree that writing is a great coping mechanism. It's probably my most effective habit I perform when I'm dealing with difficult times. Writing really helps to calm me down smile

    I use writing as a coping mechanism because it enables me to handle whatever issues affect my life. By writing them on paper, I gain greater clarity and release that allow me to move forward.

    Yes, from the words...'write it down'.............YES.

    Writing is healing.

    Yes! It's the best coping method for me. Imagine being angry at a person, or about something, then writing out everything that makes you angry. It prevents interruptions, and allows you to get everything out. When you're done, you can rip it up, throw it away, or keep it.. But it always makes me feel better..
