Writting helps me connect because it is a way for me to express my thoughs on paper. I love beign to share ideas with a collective gorup. I can not say that I am fond of writing but I do like communication. I honestly dont know what else to say.
How does writing help me connect? Writing is a thread. It weaves people together, and traces out similarities that are often overlooked. Writing helps people understand you, and helps you understand others. The way you write reveals something about you, no matter what the topic of your piece is. No only that, but writing shows things about yourself that you might not have noticed. Writing connects us, in a way, with ourselves. I write to attempt to lay out the contents of my thoughts, and piece them together in a way that makes sense. I read to do the same with others.
Writing is a concept that is very universal. It has the power to connect people from all different walks of life. Without it we would be unable to communicate with one another. We would not be able to learn and educate ourselves. For me writing has helped me ever since I was younger. Things like learning to write my name and address are memories that I still vividly remember. They are things that are very important to who I am. Writing helps us to figure out our identity because it connects us to who we are. I can also remember how writing does and still does help me connect to loved ones. It is impossible for me to always talk to people I care about all the time. So whether it be a letter, e-mail, or even text; writing helps me to feel closer to them. In my life right now writing is helping me connect to what my future will hold. College essays and essays in general that I have to write are helping to determine what my tomorrow will look like. For the rest of my like I know that writing will be a very important presence.
Writing helps me connect with other's because people can see how I feel about the world, and what is beneath the surface. Many people assume I'm a certain way because of my outer appearance, but aren't aware of the reasons why. When writing I can reveal those mysteries and help people understand why I am the way I am.
I've had people I've worked with never be interested in me or become surprised when they view thing's I've written. They are always shocked at how radical and unexpected my opinions, it's as if they don't expect me to be as smart as I sound. They don't expect be to have an opinions, because I'm so young. They don't expect me to understand things, or being able to recognize the ubiquity of things they call normalcy, as nonsense in my mind.
Writing on Facebook helps me connect to family and friends that I don’t see very often. Even writing letters helps me stay in contact with people that I can’t just pick up a phone to call. Writing keeps me connected to myself and to the people I care about. #write2connect.
