Writing is therapy for me. I may never write the next great ghanaian novel, but I will always write. I've been blocked for a while. I've also been upset. I felt like I had no control over anything in my life. Most of my feelings about my lack of control originated from the fact that I was broke.
Today I decided to write about how I felt. In less than an hour I had four letters to four very important people in my life explaining to them and to myself why I was angry at them. It felt great. I hate confrontations of a personal nature so I deleted the letters but putting down my feelings in black and white made me feel better. Now I'm still broke but I'm no longer upset. What's therapeutic for you?

  1. Exercise has a good kinna cathartic, therapeutic nature to it...but I exercise, like, never. Sooooo....crying, sex, turning up the volume full blast on my fav empowerment/hate songs...depending on the mood, usually works a treat...
