Journaling provides us with an opportunity to consider our thoughts and feelings in a different way than we might otherwise we are talking or thinking. A solid journaling practice heightens our sensitivity to the type of thoughts we tend to think, allowing us a chance to consider whether those thoughts deplete us or empower us. Journaling helps us practice empathy, first with ourselves, as well as with others. After all, it is only when we are able to open our hearts fully to ourselves that we can truly open our hearts fully to others.
