The Angst of Journaling

I can’t always speak the truth so I write it…in my journals (thirty-five spiral ring note books so far).

I sometimes wonder what my eventual readers will have to say about these scribbles.  Might they be angry? Most of the books on grief say that anger is part of the recovery process. All right then. Let them get it all out at once!

Sorry that they had not taken the time to know me well? Perhaps. In that case, they might begin to listen more to the heart of those still living.

Decide that they made the right decision after all? Why not? I am not perfect and surely some of my feelings were unjustified. The good thing is that I kept them to myself…until now.
