I got into journaling before the end of the year and only found out about then that's its a whole self help industry with pages and pages of "modules" you can include in your journaling... I honestly don't know program I guess? not to mention specially printed books and just... no wonder people bounce off journaling if they are having all that high energy garbage pushed up their brain holes. fuck the system, journal however you like, write your own rules for what it means to journal. then break all of them. fight the power, its literally your thoughts written down in your book and nobody else on earth has any authority over how you journal or what value you get out of it.
and if someone tells you otherwise hit them with your journal.
