How Journaling Can Help You Ease Your Pain

When you regularly write positive and motivating words for your own self, the hopelessness in your difficult times goes away and you begin to feel positive and motivated.

Repeated failures to clear your CA exams can make your life awfully difficult.

The frustration of being held back in life, the disappointments from your negative results, the awkward social life and other lot of problems can make your living terribly painful.

Your going gets even more difficult when there is no one in your life who can understand your pain and guide you out of the problems you are facing. What should you do during this time?

Lose all your hopes of getting your life any better than your current situation? Obsess about taking extreme steps such as suicide or running away from home? Do you have any better options left to get going in life?

I strongly believe that each of us carry a great potential to do great things in life, and the troubles we face in the way of achieving our goals are never permanent. And one of the best ways to ease your pain during the times of failures is Journaling – writing your thoughts down in your diary or computer.

The benefits of journaling during the difficult times are many.
1. It eases the burden off your mind.
Writing down the troubling, painful, worrying and such other thoughts on to paper or in computer eases your mind.

2. It clarifies your thoughts.
If your mind has been occupied with constant confusion and dilemma, journaling clarifies your thought process. The habit of journaling brings clarity in your thinking and takes away your dilemma and confusion.

3. It injects hope in you.
When you regularly write positive and motivating words for your own self, the hopelessness in your difficult times goes away and you begin to feel positive and motivated.

4. It makes you feel good.
After a few months or few years, when you look back at your writings and read them, you feel good about having overcome the troubles that once seemed unable to overcome and you feel good for having progressed much further in your life.

But how do you journal?
Whenever you start feeling bad, write down your thoughts.

Write about the bad.
Write about what’s possibly causing you the pain, what is possibly making you feel bad, what is possibly troubling you and what is bothering you. Write down all your fears and all your worries if you have them.

Write about the good.
Also write the good things in your life. Anything good that happened to you in your past and your present (and I am sure there have been plenty of good things). Even the small things that made you smile and that made you feel good, write them down.

Sometimes the people in your life won’t be of any help to you. They will not understand your pain and your problems. It does not mean that they are bad people. During such times the most important person to lend understanding towards you is you. The person who needs to be caring towards you is you alone. The person to give you faith that everything will eventually turn out okay needs to be you. And the habit of journaling helps you greatly in this.

Have you been journaling to ease your pain? To feel good? How has it helped you? Did you find this article helpful to you? Please share your thoughts with me and other readers in the comments section below.
