Mental Health Matters: Tiny Tip 30
A diary or journal can help keep track of our lives, our days, our stories. It encompasses our interests, our achievements, our emotions, and everything we’re connected to.
If anything it’s something to leave behind, a proof of memory and perception. And you get to keep in touch who you were and who you are, what is important to you, and what you’ve learned.
It’s not just a view into a world of our own imagination, but the very reality which we perceive to be true. How much of what believe actually happened, how much of it mattered, and how do we like to tell our reception of such a reflection?
Of course, this story can even turn into an autobiography, or a set of teachings to leave behind a learned legacy of insights and oversights — as it’s not just what we’ve learned but everything we missed so that we can pass over our mistakes for others to avoid.
History always repeats itself, but it can be slightly better. The worst doesn’t have to last as long or be as bad. In this zero-sum game that we call life, we can find an equilibrium that isn’t so balanced and tuned, for it’s the flaws that make us flourish. It may seem like a slimy exploit or an inevitable asteroid heading for our sanity, but any ailment can be its own containment if we can reuse our knowledge in new ways.
Tell your story, not to be some hero or savior but to document your own behaviour.
