Personal diaries- a secret keeper or just solely where people record the day's events have inspired film makers so strongly. I am sure you have once heard or watched some lovely romantic movies that the storyline is based on a girl's diary, probably well-known Bridget Jones's Diary, Princess Diaries,… Although your life is not a movie but you don't need such twists and turns in your life to write it down. So girls, why not making your life your own movie with the dearest diary. These 7 things will make you consider making a hot drink, snuggling into a warm bed and start to write.
1. Diary is a therapy
Bad events are the most likely reason for writing diary. Breaking up, bad results from school or work, arguments, fight,… all let you down and you just wanna tell somebody. But do remember, not everyone is a good listener. That's when you need to write down those deepest feelings that you can't share and too tired to hold in.
2. Truth telling time
There are many things you can't say directly to others. You don't want to hurt anyone nor breaking up any relationship. Tell the whole truth to the diary. Your best friend is always your best friend but sometimes you're not comfortable with the way she flirts in front of you. Your mom's sudden anger,…
3. Best bud for me time
Everyone needs private time. As mentioned, hot drink + comfy bed/chair + diary is the best combination ever to listen to yourself. You might think every single day is all same and boring but when you start writing, you will figure out the special aspect of normal events. Just think about what do you feel today, are you or are you not happy? Did you have a good day in general? If it was a bad day, what had happened? You will feel like getting rid of burdens and fall asleep easier.
4. Appreciate people around you
Writing diary is also about your feeling for others. How sweet your mom is for cleaning your room, making your favorite dishes. How lovingly dedicated your boyfriend is for walking you home no matter it's raining. And you realize the kindness of your best friends for being around when life has knocked you down.
5. Track your achievements
We often ignore what we achieve. Writing down a goal and how you overcome difficulties to accomplish it makes you appreciate your successes more.
6. Judge your behavior
Sometimes we are not aware of our mistakes. Throwing a tantrum at your boyfriend, telling a lie that you think it is just a white lie. All these things might lead to serious problem you will have to face later. So writing down what you have done to others helps realizing mistakes and tame the devil inside. At last you would become a better person.
7. A great way to reflect back on the past you
You can see how you have developed as a person. It's fun to look back on what you have done last year or teenage years. Surely you will laugh at yourself for silly things you did, appreciate your past efforts, and aim for something new. Quietly by your side, diary is finally a lifetime memories keeper.
No matter you are feeling blue or not? Let's open your diary and start to write!
