I’m grateful. I’m grateful that I can journal through dialogue. I’m grateful that I learn what’s going on for myself. I’m grateful for how much putting it down calms me.

    1. You’re right about both. I don’t need the validation (not for this, it was a piece of my journaling), and it definitely doesn’t hurt. Makes me feel less alone.

      1. Makes sense, Eliza. Journaling is great way to create notes for the remarks you deliver.

        Whereas the scientist leaves baffling notes (“Whatever does she think that particular formula proves?”), you helpfully explain it all.

I'd love to hear your thoughts
