Do you journal:

I have been journaling for as long as I can remember. I have so many journals it’s crazy. Writing in my journal has always given me comfort and peace. But more so now with so much going on and me having so many thoughts about things. It’s freeing to be able to express my joy, fears, and pain without any judgment from anyone. Expressing myself through writing has always helped me grow. When I was younger and I felt like I had no one to express my problems with writing helped me. It helped me learn that I did have a voice despite what I may think. It showed me how creative I could become with my thoughts and expression. It helped to write short stories, poems, and even letters. I know that some people feel like writing down your feelings is a waste of time but for me, it’s my kind of therapy. It takes the stress and burden off of me when I can write out my thoughts. It’s the calm and peace that I need in my life.

  1. I’m so disappointed that through the transition of moving to another city after a major hurricane, I lost my journals. There are times I wish I could go back and read what I wrote when I was younger. I agree, writing is very therapeutic.
