I have written my grief when I was in a very very dark place. It was nearly impossible for me not to, there was little else surrounding me. I was literally drowning in the emotion. But I did have to make a big effort to not be consumed by my sorrows.
I totally understand that other people have to. I just find there's something kind of permanent in committing pen to paper or words to a page that makes it hard for me to let go. It's just not for me. I tend to process grief in less creative ways.
Some people write about grief because it helps them or others but I don't think I'll touch on it, unless I feel it can help others, but who knows. xx
I've written about grief, it was one of reasons i started blogging. i know some people can't. That is ok.
