Maybe it's the way I grew up, but I just can't bring myself to talk about really personal stuff. Feelings, family relations, etc. In my family, no one ever spoke about one's feelings, mental state, or similar. Now I feel I'm bringing this fear of communication
into my new family.
However, I'm totally fine with writing. Writing has an edit button. You can do your writing in peace and quiet,
weigh out every word, take breaks to collect your thoughts. I don't feel the pressure of an immediate reaction of the person I'm addressing.
I was thinking that it would be nice if there was a way to somehow write down all I have to say for my kids to read.
Letters are of course not that fun anymore, it has to be something technological. StoryTold
turned out to be an app exactly how I imagined it! I write down stories, some they send to my kids right away, some will be sent in years to come (you can put in any date you want!).
