Keeping a journal is a great tool. When I write, I spend less time obsessing.I write about things that I would not be comfortable talking about with someone else.I keep it safe, where no one else can find it. No one can see it unless I share it with them.What freedom that gives me! As a result, I’m knowing myself better—understanding my motives and why I behave as I do. It’s especially helpful when I go back and reread what I wrote a few days or weeks before. But I have to be totally honest when I’m writing.It’s another form of meditation as I allow my thoughts to flow freely onto the paper, not censoring or judging myself. It’s just me admitting who I am to myself.Can I get honest with myself?
