Journaling Consists of a book with blank pages, a pen and you. You, bearing your heart and soul in private. The real you, the real pain you feel everyday. The pain you just don't want to share, how miserable you really are. My ex boyfriend read my journal not just read it but wrote all in it. I have not written in 7 years. 7 years of pain to pen. I don't even know where to begin. Let's start with sad.
