New blog post today!
Here's a preview:
I’ve kept a journal since childhood. Although I made some attempts at journaling as young as the age of 6, I started keeping a journal for real when I was around 10 or 11.
My desire to journal definitely met some headwinds. My mom was reluctant when she saw my determination to buy a diary and told me, “Never write anything that you don’t want anyone else to read.” I feel that kind of mindset totally misses the point of journaling. Plus you can always write stuff and destroy it after the fact.
If you’re an INFP with a burning desire to journal, don’t ignore that. I highly encourage you to do it. Even 15 minutes of stream-of-conscious writing can make a difference.
Many INFP’s care deeply about journaling, so here I’m sharing some of the reasons why I like to journal and how that relates to my personality type.
