Would this be ok to do? Versus keep them to read and reflect on at a later date ? I had an ex boyfriend go through allllllll of my journals (years ago)……. and ever since then, I don’t feel comfortable keeping them. I’d like to not have to censor my thoughts / feelings, so I feel if I can throw away the “evidence” regularly, I don’t have to worry about someone reading my personal property and thus, can express myself more freely.
