How to Write Your Journal?
First and foremost, be absolutely,brutally honest and straightforward. No censured material, no secretsand no editing. Write down your bare thoughts, directly distributedfrom the depths of your soul. You are putting all those words downbecause they are troubling you. Moreover, only you will read this.Therefore, there are no needs for secrecy or omitting of certainfacts.
Consider your journal an extension ofyour soul and your brain. It contains transcribed emotions, which areusually unknown to majority of people close to you. Thus, it is foryou and eventually your therapist. Finally, after every month, gothrough your journal once again and see how much you have improved.If you still have unsolved issues, move them to the last page anddeal with them the best way you see fit.
