Sometimes you just need to step away from yourself and take some time to breathe and decompress.
When this happens, I find myself writing; whether it be a story, plot scenario, poetry, or just personal thoughts, I need to get away from reality for a while.
I take “me time” very seriously. I think it’s vital in order for me to be as healthy as I possibly can be. And I’m a writer, so I use any and every excuse to put a pen to paper. What better moment to do that, than when you’re deep in your feelings about one thing or several?
