I have heard that when you have something weighing heavy on your mind, a therapeutic exercise can be to write a letter letting it all out. I just learned that there are many benefits:
1.) You can get it off your chest
2.) You can see your off-chested thoughts staring back at you
3.) You can decide if the off-chested thoughts are mixed up and crazy
4.) You can evaluate what you wish your on-chested thoughts to be
5.) You can re-write that letter to reflect how you want to feel
6.) You can adopt that re-write and make it your sincerest on-chested thoughts
So the exercise was a huge personal success! I now battle the decision to mail the letter or let it die off having served it's personal purpose.
