I am not much of an orator.
In fact, I often stumble over my words or get things mixed up in translation. (Just ask someone who knows me in real life). Perhaps that is one of the reasons I enjoy writing.
There is no one actively engaged and waiting for my immediate response. So, no reason to feel shy or nervous.
Writing seems to flow better for me, because it’s slower and my brain is able to keep up.
I can easily edit—adjust or move thoughts around. I can delete them entirely.
It’s not that I don’t want to become a better speaker: as an orator and in general conversation. I really do. But writing and I are a comfortable pair. I can express my thoughts and feelings, imperfect as they are (both my thoughts and the expression), easier.
After experiencing a huge transformation in my wellness (physically, mentally, and emotionally), I wanted to share that with as many people as possible. In case it might help them too. Writing seemed a natural way for me to do that and that is how this blog was born.
Perhaps one day I will feel comfortable sharing all of this in other ways. For now, though, I keep writing!
Which is easier for you? Talking to other people about your thoughts and ideas in person or writing them down? Let’s “talk”. I’d love to know!!
