    I have only been keeping a journal for a few weeks.  It has been a help to me because I have a lot of conflicted feelings and it is helping me straighten stuff out in my mind.

    Practice What I Know...

    I choose to end my self created misery today. I owe my wisdom to those miseries but i'm going to leave them all behind. I had noticed i had started to treasure my knowledge so much that "my knowledge" had become my identity. I had sort of started living for my knowledge. I'm...

    At Least I Try To

    I usually write about things that have been on my mind. Sometimes I write when I have no one to talk to because my friends aren't around. I write about things I want to remember, sometimes about dreams I have. I can freely express myself in my journal, I don't have to act like...

    An Instrinsic Worth

    As each hour flies away, delves into the unknown and into the past as history, i am ever so inclined to document heroic ventures and personal epiphanys each day. my yellow and pink stamped, hardback journal carries all details, ironies and observations from the day therein, tying...

    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...

    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 Soul Breaths

    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.

    Not Really.

    I have had a journal ever

    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...
