Withholding your trauma and pain might feel easier than sharing and coming to terms with it, but it is important to talk about trauma. The Love Story creates a platform for you to journal your story veiled in fiction to protect your identity. Free yourself by releasing what you have held onto.
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 and situations that lead to where you are right now. The beginning of treating mental challenges is creative expression. 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. Reveal, deal, feel, and heal.
Increase Emotional Intelligence: Becoming self-aware gives you the power to break toxic habits, make positive changes, and mature. Develop the ability to talk about tough subjects and recognize no journey is perfectly linear.
Gain self-respect: Self-respect is earned through watching yourself set healthy boundaries, knowing what you like and don’t like, becoming confident in who you are through self-acceptance. Recognize the hurdles you have overcome in becoming a more well-rounded person with natural ups and downs.
Grow Self-Confidence: Owning your shadow and learning how to integrate it will effectively increase your self-confidence and boost self-esteem through knowing and accepting oneself. Talk about trauma, and become comfortable with your story.
“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” — 1 Corinthians 13:12, KJV
Expressive Writing is one of the most effective ways of transforming trauma into creative drama, to safely deal with shadows in the containment of narrative storytelling when journaling our truth inside fiction, and to validate our experiences while validating other people’s experiences. Expressive writing not only reveals the source of your hurt, but addresses it by shining light on it.
There are three parts to The Love Story Program:
Part I: “now I know in part”—Deep listening for kindred resonances to become activated in the subconscious
Part II: “but then shall I know”—Journal 15 minutes distraction free
Part III: “even as also I am known” — Share & Resonate-edit

Most Expressive writing programs will agree on the therapeutic benefits of journaling. At The Love Story we want to take it a little further and to not only shine light on our shadows but also integrate them into our identity as a whole. Our way of writing about abuse and trauma is more effective than other programs. We are a community of individuals who have experienced heartbreak and trauma and are also working through it. Be seen, be heard, be a part of. Process in your trauma on your own timing and pacing. Be among a community of kindred spirits who are hearing, supporting and understanding one another, peer-to-peer.

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.”
