Hi Friend & Fellow Journaler – I am glad you are here and I wish you the best on your journaling journey!!
Writing/journaling is such an important part of my self-care and healing process that it made sense to me to share prompts with you to try and inspire you to write more.
Journaling can be a very powerful tool in the healing process when it is done correctly and with focused intention. That is why for trauma survivors journaling prompts are so important. Too often, you chance getting lost in the weeds of your trauma when you free hand your writing (not that you can’t benefit from an occasional trauma dump into your journal) but with the help of prompts you can focus your thoughts and create a resource for reflection and data collection as you heal your wounds.
How Does This Work?
You can download this week’s E-journal HERE for just $2.99 with unlimited downloads – or
Take the following prompts and write each one at the top of the page in your journal for each day of the coming week beginning today. When you sit down to journal, remember to reflect on what you have already written to this point, and then write only about the prompt for the day.
This helps keep your thoughts focused as you process and unpack whatever the prompt manifests for you.
I hope this helps you create a seamless and beneficial practice for self-care and healing.
7 Days of Writing Prompts
This week is a deep dive into your responses, your emotional maturity level, and ways that you cope. I also tossed in some helpful prompts for looking back at how far you have come. I hope your journaling journey this week brings you closer to yourself and offers answers as you heal.
When someone offers constructive criticism, how do you respond? What does it feel like in your body and what does it sound like in your head? Why do you believe you respond to constructive criticism this way?
Are you really hard and critical of yourself to complete tasks and get things right? Or are you extremely easy on yourself? What does your personal dialogue sound like when you are behind on something?
Are major decisions easy for you or hard for you? Are certain decisions in life more difficult than others for you? Explore how you make decisions and what it feels like in your body when you do. What fears/anxieties (if any) come up when you are faced with tough choices?
Have an honest conversation with yourself about your emotional maturity level. Do you feel emotionally mature? What areas of emotional processing and coping do you need more practice in? What are two things you can do for yourself to help you learn to identify and lean into your emotions?
Write about the bravest thing you have ever done for yourself (as an adult or child) in as much detail as you can: what did you do, why did you do it, how did it make you feel, and what was the outcome?
Write about a difficult goal that you set for yourself recently that you have reached (or are in the process of achieving): what was the goal, what steps did you take to achieve this goal, how do you feel having accomplished something you put your mind to?
What is your comfort zone? What does it look and feel like? What people, places, healing practices, projects, emotions, etc are most present in your comfort zone? What are one or two ways you can challenge your comfort zone to try new things?
How do you find moments of peace during times of great emotional discomfort? What are small tasks and projects that you do for yourself throughout a normal day that make you happy and how many of those tasks and projects do you use for coping in real-time?
