A friend said, “you write, ’cause you’re in pain.”

A friend said, “you write, ’cause you’re in pain.”

I have second thoughts in agreeing with this statement.

Yes, most of the time, I write when my thoughts and feelings overwhelm me. However, I don’t only write about the heartache and circumstances I’m going through. I also write about social issues, and I write journalistic articles.

Saying that people write because they are in pain, heartbroken or anything whatnot, is an overstatement. This is not always the case.

But if some people write through the pain they couldn’t take, they are at an advantage over some people who take drugs, smoke, or drink liquor at their heart’s content–gradually killing themselves while problems similarly kill them–for the lack of a betterย escape from their hardships.
