Do you keep a Diary or a Journal?

It appears that keeping a diary or journal has really taken off. Do you keep a diary or journal? Do you have a planner? Do you have something on physical paper or are you purely digital? Is it something that you would be interested it? Do you have the time to do it? Would you do it in the morning or in the evening? Would you let someone read it? Would you want to back and read it later on in life? If you have ever kept or going to create a physical diary or journal how long would you keep it for? Would keeping a diary or journal be something that you would be doing long term or short term? Would it be something that you would challenge yourself to be doing?

I used to as a child keep a journal on paper, but I have since stopped. I do not have the time to do it now. I am sure that I could find the time to do so but I would prefer not to. A big problem for me when I was journal was the physical paper book that I was writing in. I had so many of them, they took up so much space that I had to get rid of them. If I were to keep another journal now, I think that I would be keeping one digital. I think that before why I didn’t keep a digital journal for so long was that I watched a lot of made for teen dramas where the kids account would get hacked and it got spread around the whole school.

I have been in every situation that you could think of in regards to keep a journal regardless (except for it being spread the entire school) that well I understand it has everything to do with the other person and not myself. What you write down is what you/I felt at that moment, not what you think the whole entire time. Not everything is about the other person, you can feel what you want to feel, you are entitled to it. I am not in school now so I would be safe but it’s finding the time to t be able to do that.

I think that keeping a diary or journal can be very therapeutic as well as let you become very self aware. I think that it always you to get things out into the ‘open’ and let you be more focused on the things that matter to you in life. You do not need to have a heavy heart or be alone with the things that are going on in your life. It is ok to release your burdens.

Keeping a diary or journal is not for everyone, it is just something that I see that is trending online. It is something that I am not looking to get back into especially on paper, but it is something that I am considering. I would recommend this to all just to try. Let me know what you think about keeping a diary or journal.
