Both the forms are capable enough to convey messages crowding our mind. As all the individuals aren’t the same, so some are comfortable with written expression form while the others are more comfortable with oral expression form. We all share deep-rooted thoughts of your mind either with the diary or with someone close to our heart.

This form of expression usually happens between people close to heart. Also, one uses to convey messages, request someone by the oral or spoken form of expression. This form is advantageous as you need not have to wait for someone’s reply, the chance of getting misunderstood reduces and the chance of interpreting things in a wrong manner also reduces.

Just as the coin has two sides, so does there are also certain disadvantages of the oral form of expression, as you can never be sure how reliable a person is, maybe he double crosses you and you land into a system full of troubles! So, there is risk of you and your thoughts, opinions and views getting exposed in front of the other person. So, you must be immense close to the person with whom you are opening up your real side. So, take the topic quite seriously and open your real side up only in front of those whom you can completely rely upon.

Written Expression

It is basically an expression of words in your diaries. If someone isn’t close with people in their surroundings or have a fear that their side may not be handled well by the other person or aren’t able to express themselves completely in front of the others use this method of expression. Also, those individuals who have a fear that their thoughts, ideas, opinions and points will get open up in front of the other person then those people adopt this form of expression.

This form to has various pros and cons just like the other. Cons include the fact that you will only have to face yourself and handle yourself in the hours of distress. Though your thoughts cannot be conveyed but can be read by the other person. You will fear about the dairy if you will not find it at its place that is where it is supposed to be. While the pros include a very important feature that you will not have to fear that the other person can your thoughts to other people with whom you have issues.

In this case, you will be all for yourself and free from fear issues of getting revealed your darker side to the other person. But you should be strong enough to think and fight for yourself. Be capable enough to understand who is your friend and for in the present era.
