    I believe part of my resistance to doing this program is not understanding how to journal. No matter how hard I try to find out how other people did it, I can't seem to retain it. Can someone just give me a simple formula? How do start and how do I proceed? Thanks.

    I don't think it matters. It's simply the act of writing down your feelings. There are structured programs you can follow. It's not necessary to journal to better but it is a toll that people find valuable. I never really journaled but I did have therapy.

    As both miffybunny and Andy have said, there's no one way to do it, and everyone journals differently The important thing to remember is that you explore your feelings as much as you can and be completely honest with yourself. Don't lie in the journal, you're the only one who's going to read it anyway. Find any nook and cranny you can about your past and current experiences and how you feel, and let your grammar be as messy as you want, it's all about how you feel, not how it looks.
