#WritingWednesdayAC: writing for better communication with others
Last week, I recapped the “writing for our mental health post” and discussed mini-prompts to get us writing about reason number one! (If you want to go back and check that out, find it on our blog HERE.) This week, I’m back with questions for you about our second reason on the list! Get your pens out and writing hand warmed up...
Reason #2: communication with others.
Who is on your mind right now? Why do you think they’re popping into your head?
Who are you encouraging this season? Write out how you can be encouraging those people.
Who do you need to forgive this season? Write out what you’re forgiving these people for. How would you lead the conversation if they were in front of you?
For me, that last question always gets me. More often than not, I’m not forgiving people who have necessarily hurt me directly, but people whose actions/words I’ve misinterpreted. Forgiveness can be an acknowledgement of disagreement, and a sign of choosing to #LoveAnyway. This quote sums it up perfectly: “holding onto bitterness is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” We’re the only ones who are hurting if we’re harboring bitterness! And this is something I’m still working on every single day.
