    Hi

    The article 83 Benefits of Journaling for Depression, Anxiety, and Stress
    By Courtney E Eckerman is SPOT ON

    I’m 51
    Began Journaling when I was 17 because I was a
    1. Loner
    2. Depressed person (didn’t know it then – diagnosed Bipolar by a psychologist who I sleeked help from…..didn’t work out…long story)
    3. Had a disassociated Personality – stemmed from childhood ( had emotional abandonment disorder – from my mom leaving me at 4 years old for 4 years –

    I’m Eastern European and was brought up in a household where you don’t talk about your problems so I began to write because I had no one to talk to, I discovered all this through writing in a Journal for over 28 years – And I self- healed.

    I combined my disassociated personalities accidentally through a practice I had never heard about prior to doing it called MINDFULLNESS – but this MINDFULLNESS EXPERIMENT came about from journaling –

    My Journaling took many type of forms

    * Poetry – ( Came through me in a Rushing Outpour – I can not write poetry now to save my life)
    * Self- Help Note taking
    * Dialogue from favorite Movies – Usually deep ones dealing with Artist’s Biographies
    * Spiritual Undertones

    This Last One – Spiritual Undertone – I felt it through my writing – Not right away
    For most of my life I wanted to die -because the emotional pain was very overwhelming
    The Journal Was My Best Friend – it helped ease the Pain
    When I’d write things such as I’m a loser – I never do anything right
    There would be answers back with my own pen ( At the time I didn’t reflect on it – never did) such as You’re more than you know. A conqueror of Life . A Power to be reckoned with

    Messages Like that ( If you are a Depressed Person – You know that there’s no way that you can have such feelings off low self worth and in the next line be able to pump yourself up

    So there is a SPIRITUAL FORCE that begins working through you when you start asking and Probing WHO AM I ? I was obsessed with this because I was going crazy with my disassociated personalities. And abscessed with figuring out my PURPOSE in life. While I was going through this obsessive quest I couldn’t understand why it was that I was so abscessed with it – in the end I figured out it’s because it’s a CALLING – A SPIRITUAL CALLING – and once I accepted it and began working towards it I felt fully whole and at peace

    The only time I’m not at peace within myself is when I seriously say within ” I GIVE UP – THIS IS TOO HARD”

    My CALLING? Put out a 4 Voulume Series – MEMOIR of my 27 YearJourney –

    My 1st Book done – I’m working on applying my Editor’s suggestions

    Sorry for the messy writing – thought jumping

    If anyone wants to contact me – I’m living proof that Journaling works
    It saved my life / helped me discover my Purpose
