The Dilemma of the Digital vs. Paper Journal
I don’t like writing about negative experiences or thoughts in this journal. I think it’s partly because I’m not comfortable with sympathy from others, and I feel that my problems are my own. Because of this, my journal has a misleading positive bias. This is a problem for me mainly because a big motivation for writing is so I can go back later and understand what I was thinking and feeling at the time.
From time to time, I’ve kept a written journal as well. This tends to have the opposite problem, and I write repetitive overly emotional sappy heart-vomit, which is also not an accurate reflection of my life. More so though, my hand just cramps up because I’m not used to writing that much, and I give up. Or lose it. The journal, that is.
What I’m really doing here is beating around the bush. Taylor and I broke up this past weekend, but we’re on good terms, and are still seeing each other. We just aren’t a couple.
