Don’t lose who you are
In the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving
Dreaming is believing
It’s okay not to be okay
Own Your Identity. Forgiveness and letting go of the ones who hurt you and made you feel like you were less than enough can be one of the hardest but best things you could ever do for yourself. Their lack of love and ability to show up for you doesn’t determine your worth. Stop asking why does no one love me? and start asking why do I not love myself enough to rid myself of anyone who makes me feel worthless.
The Love Story provides both an online journal and an online community of Journal-Artists designed to hold space for you to process the overwhelming flood of suppressed emotions that come with a lack of self love and the situations that lead you to where you are right now.
The beginning of treating emotional challenges is creative expression. Through creative expression you will learn the power of control over your emotions. Explore how our journaling program will help you process that pain inside the genre of “Journal-Artism,” a writing modality that fuses journaling and journalism with the personal journey.

Becoming self-aware gives you the power to break toxic habits by catching yourself in the act. Awareness is the first step to increasing emotional intelligence, so that you do not fall into the trap of believing your negative emotions.
Self-respect is earned through watching yourself set healthy boundaries, overcoming adversity, and knowing what you like and don’t like, Listen to your body and surround yourself with others who care about your human growth. The first key to owning your identity is to remove anyone from your life who tries to change who you are.
Owning your shadow of self-hate and learning how to dissipate it will effectively increase your self-confidence, self-forgiveness and boost self-esteem through knowing and accepting oneself. We all experience a full spectrum of emotions, but knowing how to handle them or knowing what triggers them is key to knowing yourself.

Testimonials about Journaling in Act One
“You have the ability to just be like, ‘you know, this is my truth and if anybody doesn’t like it that’s fine because as far as they are concerned, everything that I’m saying is not real.’ It’s really helpful to know that people aren’t gonna to know what’s real, what’s not real, with what you write. You can release things and nobody will be the wiser about it.”
“I want to go back and explore. Why did it happen when it happened. …Women often suppress their emotions…we think, ‘if I just swallowed that back, it’ll go away,’ and it’s like ‘Nope! Still here.’ and so I think I’m starting to really figure, I can’t swallow that back. I need to let things out.”
“The point of journaling is to really just look inside and be like, ‘okay, what is this? Why am I feeling it? And what do I do with it?’ And that’s sort of what you have to ask yourself when you are journaling.”
