Sometimes stress can creep up on you if you are the kind of person to bottle things up or brush away negative feelings. It is kind of a toss up; if you are lucky the emotional problem will go away but there are certain issues that stick with you until you confront them. When it comes to writing, there are two healthy methods of relieving stress. The first one is to write whatever comes to mind as it can be a good distraction. The other is to write out your problems to yourself and try to understand why you feel certain ways. Once you find out why you are reacting in a certain manner, it is easier to solve the problem.
