Purl Gurl says when goes back and she reads what she wrote she is embarrassed and throws stuff out. In a way that’s good. That’s the point. The more you can see that what seemed like mountains at the time was not really so bad, and in fact either turned out fine or just kind of went away, the more you should be able to look at today’s upsets and realize ‘this too shall pass.’ I notice some older people are pretty good at ignoring the small stuff. And even the big stuff. When you’re lived through The Great Depression and a half dozen recessions since then, the current economic conditions seem less frightening. So part of my journaling has been to look back at stuff I wrote when I was going through my divorce and think, “Wow, what melodrama!”
