We all have painful experiences –
Instead of letting it bog us down, keep us from doing more with our lives, we must use the energy of that pain to feed our creativity.
Write out the painful experience as if it’s happening to someone else.
One writer I knew created a superhero to fight for him when he was unable to fight for himself. Painful experiences, left to rule, stop us from being our very best. You must get it out, get rid of it, use it for your benefit, and the pain of the past will lose its power.
Write it from the superhero’s point of view.
Write yourself out of that painful experience. And Live.
