just how expressive are you? How explicit?
I am interested in starting a creative journal but in the past I've always shredded or burn what I've written in case it was ever found (ooo, no thankyou!).
Knowing that your journal might be read by someone else one day, are you still totally frank, explicit and expressive? Or do you measure it a bit and leave some stuff out?
I've always kept journals and I've shredded a few too. As I've gotten older I've regretted destroying them. The way I deal with journaling is by living my life in a manner that I'm not ashamed to write about. That way, I can be explicit as I wish without having to hid from every mirror.
However, my mom kept a diary and was very paranoid that someone was reading it. She died when I was 11 and I'm very glad she kept one. And yes it was read and I'm glad to be able to hold on to some part of my mom, even if it was all the bits she was uncomfortable with. She's my mom and I love her no matter what.
