Journaling Helped Me to Unpack The Grieving Baggage I was Carrying

While I Grieved, Journaling Helped Me to Unpack The Baggage I was Carrying

Grieving is a heavy load to carry. M told me I was carrying a lot of baggage and it was time to start unpacking. She gave me advice that made all the difference. She encouraged me to journal as I grieved. Here is an excerpt from Dancing Alone: Learning to Live Again.

“You’re carrying a lot of baggage, Ray. You need to unpack it, or it’s going to burden you for the rest of your life.” M replied. “Journaling will help lighten the load so one day you will fly unafraid through the clouds. Let your journal reflect your deepest emotions, your deepest feelings, and your perceptions of what happened to Babe and you. Try journaling about your grieving experience.”
