Eight Journal Prompts For When You Need To Get Something Off Your Chest

Mending is full of ebbs and flows. Sometimes as you’re going through the motions you just need to vent, and journaling is a great way to get everything off your chest without unloading it all on a friend or family member or sending a really long text to your ex that you might later regret.

The only problem is that sometimes when you open your journal to write, you’re almost at a loss for words. No clue where to start. We want to help with that.

Below are a few journal prompts to get you started, whether you’re in the mood to show yourself some love or rage about your hurt. They’re simple kickstarts but once you start writing, the rest usually flows out without too much thought.

For self-love…

What do I love about my life as it is right now?

What does my ideal day look like? From morning to night…

A time I felt most accomplished was when…

I’m happiest when I’m…

For anger…

I can’t stand when…

The thing I miss least about my ex is…

I’m most scared about…

I just don’t understand why…

We hope this helps you work through some of your thoughts and feelings as they come up for you, so you can continue on the path of mending.
