The Good Patrons of 750 Words

A Note of Inspiration from Member Humble Tiger

750words, I love you more than words can express. I am getting better at wordly expression though, thanks to you. I have begun a very brave/scary thing, and it’s only thanks to this site that I have been able to consciously process my emotions enough to know what I need to do.

The process is so simple, and this site is so simple, deceptively so. It has exactly what I need and nothing more to distract.

This morning I noticed that I haven’t felt motivated to do my words this past week—I am on a 72-day streak and prior to this I felt very motivated every day. They were a highlight for me, and lately it has felt like more of a burden. When I sat down to write anyway (almost 100% to see that streak continue, so thanks for the motivation!), I got out a lot of stuff that has been scaring me. It’s been an embarrassingly slow process to get this all figured out, but there is no room for judgment here and that’s been so positive. When I was finished, I felt so much better, and I realized that is true every single time I write my words, regardless of my state of mind when I begin. Sometimes I cry when I didn’t think I needed to. Sometimes I work through exactly what I intend to. But every single time, it helps me to see more clearly and to feel relief.

I also realize that this is not just the site but that the practice has actually helped ME to become the agent of these positive changes. Since starting on this site a few months ago, I have had an easier time identifying, labelling and dealing with my emotions. I hadn’t even realized before just how difficult this used to be for me.

It doesn’t begin to cover the depth of my gratitude, but thank you for existing. Please continue to do so for as long as possible. <3
