For Fear Of Being Judged

My sentiments exactly on keeping a journal. From time to time I destroy them when I worry about someone reading them, someone who won’t understand what I have written. Unfortunately, it happens often, prying eyes. I end up being accused of things, never asked out of genuine interest about my thoughts and feelings.

Nobody has the right to judge what you are feeling or writing. Maybe they haven’t experienced the horrific things you have suffered but they should be able to empathize. If they can’t, just tell them you hope they are never in your shoes.
