    I had a diary entry from

    when I was 15 or 16 talking about how sad I was and that I wanted to die, but I don't think I meant it. Mum had found it as well, and brought it up "what's this about?" but I told her to ignore it. Another time I had confided in my nan about my feelings and ended up crying into...

    I expect a lot of people do this

    and it can be fun, but diaries keep too many secrets, too many dark memories, crushes and bad things that had gone through our head. Recently, I burned the one I had because it reminded me too much of the bad things. I don't know if I should've done that, though. There were some...

    But Want To Get Rid Of Them...

    As they bring back memories of unhappy times, times filled with pain and hurt. I am hoping that by throwing them away, I am also in a way pyschologically freeing myself. I will always keep my childhood diaries though as they are more amusing to look back on and aren't painful to...

    Been a While...

    I used to keep track of anything that struck me as interesting in my life a long time ago...well maybe not THAT long ago, but still. I wrote down everything in my diary, my day's events, my thoughts, and wrote down details of my strange dreams. (In fact I think I still have those...

    Stopped

    I got bored of it. I thought, what's the point of writing about my life if no one's ever going to read it? And hide it so no one can? So I stopped writing my diary, I kind of regret it now....

    Exactly

    They used to be fun. I would write entries with my sister and we would hide the diaries all over the place. We always fought but when it was diary time we just somehow got along. We wrote one good thing about each other and what we did that day. But now I look back and I can't...

    Discriminating Evidence

    I kept a journal of my experiences and events from the ages of 17-19. All my youthful partying, drinking, and sexual explorations were in there. But I also had a revengeful, black-mailing Brother, and a loving, but strict, religious Father. A girl's Dirty Diary against two...

    I Kept A Diary During My Freshman Year Of High School

    Reading what I wrote again just gives me a different perspective of the kind of person I was back then. I also realize just how stupid and naive I was back then, it makes me kind of sad. Although, some things back then still haven't changed. I was as depressed back then as I am...
