10 Ways to Ease Depression With Only Your Pen - The Gift of Writing -

10 Ways to Ease Depression With Only Your Pen - The Gift of Writing - | Creatively Aging | Scoop.it
I’d rather tell you I have it all figured out. How depression is behind me and I have all the answers sitting snugly in my back pocket. But that’s not how it goes with this ugly illness. It finds you in the cracks where you try to seek joy. And sometimes, you wonder if you’ll ever out-run it.

Depression is the secret that pervades many households—the one most hide away from in shame. I keep writing about it because as I learn how to catch up with, and hopefully outrun, this thing, I want to bring many others with me on the journey. And the fact that so many people do hide away makes me all the more determined to bring this thing into the light.

I’m not going to tell you depression can be cured with writing. I don’t believe there is just one cure—it’s a complex illness with different answers for everyone. But I can tell you that writing is a tool. It’s something that will help you stop running, if only for a little while.

Gavin Umstead's curator insight, March 27, 11:12 PM
I decided reading this article on writing how is used as a tool in depression. I liked this article a lot because her motives were pure and simple. Myself having depression this article really caught my eye and for me had a lot of useful information that I can use for myself. She explains what to write about while writing for depression because and to me after trying to write for depression has been the hardest part, knowing what to write and what will be beneficial. I really appreciated how organized it was laid out being a teenage boy made is for an easier read. As well she is trying to bring this topic of depression more known because the illness specifically is more times than not, not shared often. She clearly has is a credible source to be writing on aid of depression because herself has depression.
