My IC is the wise one here. He's come up with some AMAZING ideas since I've been to see him.
First was journaling in the first place, which I never would have thought of on my own. Second has been "choice of medium."
If it wants to come out as a picture, draw a picture. If it comes out as a poem, write a poem. If it comes out as a stage play, write the play. Don't force your thoughts/words/feelings to adhere to a single form because it's "normal." Draw, sing, write, act, sculpt; digital, physical, written, whatever.
The idea of the journal is a catalog of process. It's to look and see back in time, to verify that you're making progress, and to give you vindication and validation that things today are better than they were X days ago.
