Most people use drugs to deal with the pain of their past; I turned to writing. – Thomas W.P. Slatin
Turning to anything positive might just be the way out from pains and struggles of life. I turn to writing songs for me.
Writing is proven and tested way to help you release and ease pain. You can always shout your heart out through words in writing. Writing is always better than drugs.
Everyone copes differently. It is just sad that some turn to drugs. It is also admirable for some people to do great things when they have to face a thing of the past.
People cope with their own anguish in many different ways. It’s something we cannot really be judgmental about if they choose dangerous roads, but the least we can do is help them when they do ask. And I agree, writing is a lovely form of therapy.
For my case, I either engage in family talks or good video gaming with friends. I have noticed it’s far more better to be with friends.
You did the right thing..taking drugs to eradicate pain is one of the worst decision one can ever make..
The photo is vandalism or loitering ha ha. Anyway I am an freelance writer myself. Inspiration can literally come from anywhere.
Sometimes, things that are wrong can look good like that. I love your photos.
You will doing great and that’s why you are doing great too. You turn all pains to something positive I believe that’s how it should be.
I used to write a lot of my feelings on my journal. I miss doing that.
Great choice, is not eassy to redirect pain and frustration into something positive.
I remember seeing your early writing and drawings
on the dining room wall on Bank St., NYC!
You started early.
Those were the good old days… More about that coming soon…
