A journal should not only be about what you did for the day, but your thoughts about how it went, how you felt, what mistakes you made, what you could do to improve; and perhaps, more importantly, an opportunity to practice forgiveness towards oneself and others.
Your journal is personal to you – it has the potential to be both therapist and a friend and is available 24 hours a day. You can write in your journal things you wouldn’t dare tell anyone else.
Writing it down takes the edge off feelings and emotions and helps you to think and understand what you’re feeling – more in observation, than judgment.
