Bring something to as much life as you can, with ONE page in your journal. I’m not going to say “appeal to senses”, as there are other ways to put life into your writing. But, do it however you want. Doesn’t have to be something you love or hate, just bring IT to life. Make it more than an ‘it’.

Something I am trying to bring to light is my mental illness. For a very long time I have tried to hide it from everyone because I was scared of being harshly judged. Now I think that maybe I should just be open about struggling with bipolar disorder. This is going to be difficult for me to open up about because I have kept this side of myself hidden for so long and I am not a very open person to begin with. It is possible that I might become understood by others better if I share this with them. There are very few people that I share my mental illness with and it does feel good to have someone to talk to about this subject. What made me decide to share my mental illness with others is reading The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. There is no evidence of her having a mental illness but society did label her as crazy. I identified with this book very much and it became my inspiration to open up about my best kept secret.
Thank you for sharing!!! 😊🙏🖋
