I started writing poetry two and a half years ago. I started blogging two and a half years ago. Before that, I frequently used to vent out my thoughts onto paper/type it out.
Now, looking back and rereading my old writing, I can see how much has changed from within me. I am no longer at a dark phase in my life. I’ve made a 180° turn and feel happy and calm from within – something I said I’d always reach in my writing, something I’d write in future tense but gradually finally became the present.
And I think that blogging somewhat played a part in my growing up and transcending from depression to normalcy.
However, having a lack of a dark phase makes it increasingly difficult to write as I no longer have anything really bothering me to write about xD. I feel that the quality of my writing also decreased, as I was starting to focus on different things.
Anyway, I still won’t give up on writing – I’ll continue to write whatever I feel even if I’m not feeling anything.
For the readers who stuck around through it all, thank you!
