Writing down our thoughts and feelings can help in many ways. It can provide relief from intense emotions, help slow down and/or clarify our thoughts, and just be generally helpful to 'get it out'.
Sharing what we write with others helps them as well. Being able to read about how other people feel helps us to know we are not alone and can give words to our own experiences.
