Whilst struggling to conceive I took to journaling to try and make sense of my emotions and to give myself somewhere to vent. Journaling is a safe space for me to vocalise my thoughts without judgement or scrutiny.
I have never shared my entries with anyone else, nor do I feel the need to. For me, journaling is a private place to share my feelings in the moment but also a place to go and look back at how far I’ve come.
Writing about my feelings has helped me to better understand and regulate how I am feeling. I always feel a little lighter after I have spent time journaling.
