I write for myself

If I say I write for myself, think about it this way. Let us say the retentive capacity of ideas that my mind can accommodate at a time is a hundred ideas. Any extra idea to it is an overload. Therefore, the more I keep adding to the hundred, the more pressure I bring to my head. The only way to help myself with these excess ideas that come to my mind is to let go of some previously-stored ideas in my mind. This I do through speech or writing. Sharing creates fresh space for new ideas to come in. As people get blessed by the reading or hearing of my ideas, I also get to free my mind from any unwanted pressure or stress that excess ideas bring to my head.
So I must say that even if there were no eyes to gaze upon my writings, I will continue to write because it helps me to get rid of the excess ideas to relax my mind. Hundreds of ideas have I written, what do you think will happen to my head if I were to keep all of them in my head? Maybe I would go crazy. So to save my mind and keep it relaxed, I free it by sharing it through writing. That is why I said I write for myself. Though most people love my writings and are blessed by them, I write for myself first before them. I may not be able to stop writing because writing is a medicine unto me as a mind first of all before it becomes a blessing unto others.

COMMENT, I love to hear what you think.
