I used to write in a journal a lot as a teen and into my early 20s (I'm 27 now). A combination of narration and FEELINGSSSS. It was something I enjoyed doing and that seemed like a good way to sort of decompress at the end of the day. Also recording a personal history is kind of emphasized as part of the religion I grew up in. I have a pretty big box in my closet filled with all of the different journals I ever wrote in. From time to time I've gone back to read through one or two and remember something like an experience I may have forgotten or something like that, but usually they just sit there.
I still write occasionally in a journal, but not nearly so much.
I am starting to get to the point that I feel a strong need to get rid of anything that I don't use or that doesn't have a function in the foreseeable future. I kind of feel as though they have fulfilled their purpose and just want to chuck the box and free up that space in my closet, but I wonder if it's the kind of thing I will regret. I have only regretted throwing away 1 or 2 things. Usually I don't regret it at all, but this could potentially be more meaningful.
What would be the value of saving it?
