Some things are better written than said out loud

Some things are better written than said out loud

If you're anything like me, expressing yourself in person can be a real struggle. I mean, seriously, it's like my brain turns to mush when faced with an important conversation. I get nervous, my tongue ties itself into knots, and bam! The moment slips away, leaving me wondering why I couldn't just say what I really meant in the moment. 

But here's my secret. I've discovered a way to pour my heart out without stumbling over my words: writing it down. Yep, there's something so liberating about putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard, if you're more of a digi type).  Once all the social pressure is taken away, suddenly my thoughts and feelings flow out of me, untamed and unashamed. 

And you know what? I'm not alone in this sentiment. I've come to realise that there are plenty of people out there who prefer receiving heartfelt messages in written form too. I mean, who wouldn't want a beautifully crafted declaration of affection instead of a shaky, mumbling confession? (Although, let's be honest, it would be bloody lovely to have both but we can't always have our cake and eat it too!)

There's something undeniably special about the power of written words. They become real and tangible, like little nuggets of emotion you can hold in your hands (mmmmm nuggets..). 

We all crave evidence that we're good humans, that we matter, and that we are loved. And what better evidence could there be than a physical card or letter, handwritten with love? It's like receiving a warm, tight hug from the universe. It's a keepsake of connection, a testament to the bond we share with others.

So, the next time you find yourself stumbling over your words or struggling to express your heartfelt emotions, grab that pen or open that document. Embrace the power of the written word by telling someone how you really feel. A heartfelt handwritten card or note is a gift that keeps on giving.
