I was going to start this off by saying sorry for posting so much, but... I'm tired of saying those words when not needed and I shouldn't be sorry about writing again - that's what this site is for. I was also going to say about how poorly I journal, but instead I will say I haven't learned how to journal well yet. I understand why: nobody has taught me that I needed to or how to do it previously. So...I've been following the SEP and I am trying to go 20-30 minutes long for the past traumatic event, but I can't seem to go longer than 10 minutes on many (not all) of my events unless I go way off topic. I don't feel like I'm purposely trying to block something out, but who knows? I also noticed that I go way off tangent (I know that's acceptable) but it seems like I write 5 or 10 minutes about my feelings and that situation, then I write for 10 or so about other things I go off tangents with. Can anyone relate? I'm assuming I'll get better in time with this. Then again maybe it all doesn't matter as long as I'm writing?
