Reading and Writing: Meaning and purpose

About reading and/or writing, why is it so important to you? What is the meaning/reason you find in reading and/or writing? What makes it relevant, why?
I’m, by no means, looking for any answer in particular, just interested in listening to all points of view, as long as it’s honest and genuine.
I’m always looking for the 'why’s behind my actions, interests, thoughts, feelings and so. It’s kind of exhausting, but I enjoy introspection, and spending so much time on my own with my… everything, pouring it into art is a lovely way to dive into life and experience. But it’s still kind of abstract and remote, I can’t quite explain it. So I would really like to listen to what you have to say.

Cheers! :slight_smile:
