Write to heal: Bakhtawar Rakhshani

Many of thrown this question to me why should I write whenever I tried to convince them for writing. On one hand, they are right because I too asked this question to my teacher when first he asked me to move my pen. However, when I start writing letters at the first, I felt like it is my responsibility to raise my voice whenever there is a need and I can perform it if I keep highlighting them through my pen.

The journey goes from letter to blogs and blogs to articles. Then I start penning down each thought which stuck my mind in the shape of a quotation, poem, or poetry.

Something that I always felt while writing has been the feeling of healing. After jotting down any piece, I felt like healing from inside. For me, writing is a way of conversation where thousands of people listening to you all alone.

It gives you authority to put your opinion, arguments, objections, and frustration on a piece and take out all the suppressed feelings.
So I ask you to write not for others but for yourself. Write to heal. Write to grow. Write to make yourself at peace.
