Talking about it... - June 9th 2012, 08:11 AM

How come talking with your voice, physically, is so much harder than any other method of release (for example, writing)? Any psychological or scientific explanation would make me scream with intense delight, but any comment is awesome.

Thank you ......

But believe that there is much more good in it than bad.
All you have to do is look hard enough,
And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may in fact be the first steps of a journey.”

I don't have a psychological or scientific explanation, but I think it might have something to do with the fact that if you write or draw something, you don't have to worry about saying too much. You can always look back over what you were trying to say and change it. Or just not show it to anyone, even if that was your original plan. When you're actually talking to people in person, you can't just erase something you said that you want to take back. I don't know if that makes any sense, just what I've thought.

I feel like when I write it down that sometimes it can seem clearer. I can see it and I can also hear it in my head before giving it. Kinda like above you can change it. Sorry that wasnt helpful but just my thoughts you can see it..

I kind of agree with what's been said. You can always "start over" with a journal entry, tearing out the old one and writing what you really want to say the second time. You can draw a picture, then crumple it up and throw it away. You can erase mistakes, take your time putting it down on paper, and keep it to yourself. When you're talking to someone, though, you don't have all those luxuries. Once you've said something, you can't take it back. Usually, you can't spend too much time "rehearsing" what you want to say in a conversation, because you don't know what the other person is going to say or ask. Finally, you're forced to "be with" someone when you're talking to them, whether it's in person or over the phone, which is different from writing a letter/journal entry or drawing a picture by yourself. So at the end of the day, I think there are two main reasons why talking is more difficult than writing or drawing for some people:

1. You can't take back your mistakes.
2. You are forced to be with another person.
