Why should I journal?

Why Journal?

Journaling allows you to speak freely and openly about your thoughts, pain and doubts after losing a loved one. It allows you to let go and forget about the pressure to be strong. It is a wonderful avenue to take instead of keeping all your emotions bottled up inside of you.

Prompt Journal

When keeping a journal about your loss, use the 'prompt' method. A prompt is a question asked, to inspire an essay, short story, article, or in this case, a journal. Write the question at the top of the page and let your thoughts flow freely in answering it; don't hold back your emotions.

Letters To a Child

There are many ways to journal your grief. One idea, with the loss of a child, is to keep a journal of letters to the child. In each daily letter, talk about your love for the child, the pain of losing him/her, and every day events. This can help greatly and is way to keep the child a part of your life.

Free-Flowing Journal

Just write! It doesn't have to be every day, or very long. When you need to get things out, write it out! Allow yourself to be upset and emotional. The paper will not judge anything you say to it.

Memory Journal

Another type of grief journal you can keep is a memory journal. In this journal write down all your memories of the loved one, and the special events of his/her life. A memory journal is a good way to organize the photos and events of your loved ones life. Write about the many happy times that you shared.
