first journal

So this is my first journal and I'm trying to tell something, I don't know if to someone or what but it has a kind of trapped feeling. I am really scared though. I don't want to feel and think these things now. I don't want to at all, but every night I'm forced to. This is stupid I don't know where to start or what to write.

Start off with a bit about yourself, what you think, feel, ideas you have, things you are curious about.

I\'ll put some good articles on journaling ideas below.

My journal here is about things I WISH someone told me about when i was a screwed up teenager starting to figure things out. You\'ll find a theme you like in time.

Maybe \"Things that make me happy\" or \"things i wish more people knew about me?\"

Nothing you feel the need to say is stupid. I quite often go on about the most banal things. Everything is there for a reason, it all paves the way for what you really want to say. Remember you don\'t have to share anything you don\'t want to and if you don\'t want to write about it yet, that\'s fine too, it means that you aren\'t ready to look at it yet. It took me until a month ago to remember what happened to me, in full when I was five. Sure I had bits I remembered, but it was all in pieces, and it is only now that I am strong enough to see the whole thing that my mind has let it unravel. Keep at it, tell us about your day, about the things that matter to you and in time, you will find that you are able to open up a little more. You don\'t even need to share it, you can write the journal entry just for yourself and share when ready. Sometimes just admitting it to yourself is enough.

Remember what I said about me going on and on....yeah. This is where I will stop before I put you to sleep with my essay :)
