I've recently had to go through all of my livejournal posts for immigration (they wanted to know my job history for the last 10 years, and fortunately, I actually recorded that kind of information in my livejournal when I was younger). Unfortunately, that also involved a giant slog through whiny, emo, pissy posts through livejournal from the mind of a 17 year old girl and onward.
Just now, I thought it'd be cool to look at my deviant journal posts, and was just as horrified. I'd love to just go and delete everything, but I think it would be dishonest to do so--aside from being whiny, there's nothing in there that's particularly damning--just embarrassing--and, I suppose, honest.
At any rate, I guess I felt it important that it is recorded somewhere that I looked back at my posts and somewhat regret the self-entitled attitude, or the put-upon girl who was treated 'poorly' by life. I can't believe how many times I wrote 'please read this' before whining like a kid. I mean, journaling is an excellent outlet, but I wonder if I was using it as an outlet for attention, or just sympathy. I don't remember anymore. I suspect attention.

At any rate, nowadays, I try to use journaling as an opportunity to reflect. If I do manage to post anything in here from now on (not necessarily always likely--I'll type things up and then delete them before they get posted, more often than not), I'm hoping it'll be a reflection, instead of a whine-fest. Or it could be a silly post about boogers or something. I like silly posts too. Just sayin'.
