Feeling like you need to express your thoughts and feelings but want them to remain private.  That’s when you start a journal.  A journal is your most intimate friend.  It will keep all of your secrets and thoughts that you want and need to get out but don’t trust them to anyone but yourself.  Some people write in a journal every day while others only use it when they get the urge or notion.  Journaling allows you to keep tabs on your daily activities so if you need to look back on why you were feeling a certain way about a certain situation, you can reflect on it.  Many people swear by them.  What’s in yours?
