Blogging is nothing more than writing your thoughts and sharing them with others. So we can day that blogging has always existed.

That is the reason there are blogs about almost every topic. We choose what we share on it.

According to many of the psychological theories, keeping our feelings and thoughts bottled can develop cause mental illnesses.

That is why most of the therapeutic tools are based on expressing ourselves.

In fact, many psychological studies show that expressing emotions and thoughts is a cathartic relief. In that way, writing therapies are also cathartic. And blogging can be therapeutic, too.

In the same way, blogging as therapeutic writing practice can help us find meaning in experiences and feelings. More than a cathartic therapy, blogging can make us see things from a fresh perspective.

Another therapeutic relief from blogging is finding a support system. For people with similar experiences, blogging can help you find a community of like-minded supporters.
