Sound too good to be true, journaling for emotional healing? Can simply putting pen to paper really help you not just survive, but thrive? Short answer? Yes
SwanWaters recently started sending out daily journaling prompts, a phrase a paragraph, a quote, a thought… Anything that will inspire thought and writing.
A few pages into Finding Your Wings, I felt a shift in my perception as I realized that it’s not just that you journal, it is also about how you journal.
Do you sometimes just walking around like a headless chicken? Do you, like me, like to sit down for a moment, pour yourself a cuppa and put pen to paper?
What I did not yet realize is that sharing my story would have a profound effect on my own healing process. Or that it could positively influence so many other survivors’ lives as well.
Journaling can have many positive effects on your journey of healing and abuse recovery. Receiving feedback from peers can make that experience even better.
I definitely feel that writing about my story has helped me gain insight. Using a forum to tell that story does not only mean that you receive feedback, It also means you will be asked to clarify or reconsider your story.
