I Write In a Journal Daily

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 184 People

    I read somewhere that writing down your

    thoughts can really help with depression. To be honest, my mind has been a lot clearer now that I have an outlet. I could never tell my friends how I feel sometimes, so writing a journal is helpful because of how personal and private it is. Hopefully I can keep this one going...

    Journalling For Mental Health

    Writing in my journal has helped me to get through some very bad times, including coming to grips with the death of my son. I can share thoughts and feelings in my journal that I would never say to another person and can get them out that way. It's interesting to go back and read...

    My Journal Saved My Life

    The main reason I write in a daily journal is because once, several years ago, I had a very very difficult, stressful experience. I tried running away from home, but didn't get very far before I realized that my family would just come after me. Eventually, I just locked...

    My Soul Breaths

    I have had a journal ever

    since I was thirteen years old and in middle school. When the days were awful, that journal was there to soak up all of my tears. As I get older, I find that my journal entries are much longer and filled with silly things such as what I ate for breakfast. To be completely...

    I've kept a journal since I went off to

    university in 2007. I love to open up a clean new journal and write the first entry, and I enjoy going back to read finished journals. Keep them safe and easily accessibly in case of fire. I don't actually write every single day, usually every other day, but sometimes multiple...

    I was going through my turning point

    when I first wrote my online journal 2 years ago. It was my therapy and my release during a chaos. Lately, I've been writing more about people around me in my life. The good and the bad. The ugly and beauty. Things in life. Things I go through with people. I wrote exactly what...

    It's a 3 year daily journal.

    It asks you a question and you're supposed to answer it. Each day the question is different.

    Not Really.

    Keeps Me Sane

     I started my first journal at age 11 and have kept one ever since. I do it mostly because I seek a sense of continuity in my life, and once in a while I need to see how far I've come. It also helps me to order my thoughts and keep my goals clear. It's been hard to journal...

    Benefits of Keeping a Journal

    I have a Journal a home that I write in also it helps me to write in one. I think when you keep everything bottled up inside you it's not good for you and if you don't really have anyone you can talk to about things you might want to keep a Journal.
