Keeping a journal helps keep your thoughts and fears, safe and orderly, untilrepparttar time comes that you will know what you want to do with them. You may sit down to journal about how angry or frustrated you are at a particular situation. Afterwards, lo and behold you find that you anger is actually stemming from something totally different. That is what journaling is for. It's an avenue for your subconscious to speak. Where you are able to sort out you thoughts and feelings and get torepparttar 135022 core of what you're really feeling and thinking. I’ve heard so many people say, “but what am I going to write in it?” That’srepparttar 135023 beauty of it. You can write down anything that comes to mind. The trick isn’t inrepparttar 135024 writing butrepparttar 135025 attempt to put down on paper some ofrepparttar 135026 things you have held and let build up for so long. You don’t have to be a “writer” to write. There have been days whenrepparttar 135027 only entry in my journal is, “I can’t think of anything to write about.” Those days, however, become farther and further between as you become more familiar and feel more comfortable writing down whatever it is that you’re thinking. It doesn’t have to be good or even make sense. You are giving yourself a physical non-threatening way to begin your inner dialogue. It goes without saying that you keep this journal private and in a place where only you can read it, until you can decide whether or not to share it, burn it, or whatever you want to do with it.

The whole point of this conversation is that with help you can come to a point thatrepparttar 135028 past is no longer so threatening. That many of us who finally tookrepparttar 135029 “bull byrepparttar 135030 horns” and decided to face our past head on; found to our surprise that we could control our reaction to it. We could stop being afraid. We still haverepparttar 135031 rest of our lives ahead of us, let’s get moving toward that more healthy future than constantly fearingrepparttar 135032 past. We only have today---the past is just that---inrepparttar 135033 past---tomorrow is a mystery in which all kinds of miracles could unfold if we just let them. We want to train ourselves just as an athlete would for their hardest race, to be strong and healthy to make today and tomorrow count for something. We are no longer victims. we are survivors and we should give ourselvesrepparttar 135034 respect that as survivors we deserve. It isn’trepparttar 135035 goal, or hoping that we’ll be ok in a decade or so. This may sound harsh but unfortunately it isrepparttar 135036 truth. Everyday, most of us haverepparttar 135037 capacity to make choices whether to continue to obsess helpless onrepparttar 135038 past without making any changes or seeing any results. We also can make choices to work toward positive goals and ways to work more inrepparttar 135039 present and towardrepparttar 135040 future, dealing withrepparttar 135041 past as quickly and effectively when it tries to interfere with our onward path. It’srepparttar 135042 journey that counts and we need to learn to appreciate and enjoyrepparttar 135043 journey.
