When I was in college, I used to write a journal with my bad thoughts and complaints about life because it would take them out of my system and I could focus on something else. I look back at those journals now and remember how I was feeling and what I was going through and I can see how far I've gone.
However, now that my family is going through so much and I feel sometimes depressed and some times overwhelmed, I keep thinking of starting a journal, and the minute I do I start thinking that I don't want my thoughts on paper, because it seems it would make them more real, and I'm afraid of what I would write and how I would feel about it. :-(
I really need someone I could talk to that would not try to just solve the problem for me or oversimplify the problems. Someone that would just listen and help me focus my mind, like my father used to do. A journal sometimes can help with that. I just don't know...
Any ideas, anyone?
