The lockdown period brought about a time of deep reflection in many ways. An increasing number of people were having more conversations about rest, picking up hobbies, and seeking personal and spiritual grounding amid the mass uncertainty.

From the moments of learning that many have encountered, you may underestimate the power that comes from sharing what you know.

This may be some personal epiphany or a subject you've been learning, but sharing knowledge can be valuable in several ways. Here are five reasons sharing knowledge can support your personal development and that of others:

Confidence Building

The more you practice expressing yourself, the better you get at it. In addition, by sharing some of the things that you've learned are learning, you start to build more confidence about it.

Releasing Stress

"That process causes cognitive changes in the brain that tell your body 'Relax, you're good.'"

Nancy Morgan, writing clinician and director emeritus of the arts and humanities program at the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, told "Oprah.com"

Morgan also mentions that divulging troubling feelings helps your brain make sense of "something chaotic."

A Better Understanding

Much like with journaling, you have to put something in words and explain it to someone else to grasp it means that you have to reconcile with the idea first.

That also means that you have to grapple with trying to understand a concept yourself. As such, you'll have a deeper understanding.

Feedback

Along with getting to know something more deeply, you open up space for dialogue by sharing knowledge with others. Getting feedback or other thoughts n something you've been thinking about can help you have a more nuanced understanding of what you are learning.

Other people's perspectives aren't necessarily a tool to validate your experience but rather a way to see the picture in more colors.

For example, if you're sharing your story about a frightening health diagnosis, someone shares a similar experience. Still, how they felt differently, you get a bigger picture of how this one thing can mean so many other things. This can help also help with your own development.

Helping Others

People often connect with sincerity. When you are vulnerable enough to share, it may not be guaranteed that everyone will embrace or is ready to hear what you have to share. Still, often people can connect with relatable human concepts and emotions.

For instance, sharing lessons you've picked up from experiencing grief or even sharing a skill you've learned, like baking, can help people feel less alone or try to discover something new. This can be important for the personal growth or healing of others as well.
