    Not Really.

    I love notebooks, ones with nice patterns and colours. I have many notebooks, all colours and different sizes. I write daily in my journal, things that happened that day, and all my feelings and emotions. Writing in a journal is something I enjoy, and I find it fun flipping...

    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...

    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...

    My Soul Breaths

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I love writing in general.

    The days when I don't feel needed, or even when something awesome happens. It's easy just to write in a journal knowing nothing your writing haas to be seen. Sometimes things you have such a hard time talking about will flow so easily on pen and paper. It can help me stay on the...

    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...

    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...
