|one day your offspring might want to read it...when you arent here anymore!
When my mother died, my father took all her old journals and ~~ I was protesting wildly against this ~~ burned them. I am still mourning the loss of those writings.
I was able to salvage one little section because she had started recording on the computer and he didn't know about those files.
I have read and re-read that section dozens of times.
My mother wrote about the most mundane things you could possibly imagine...but I love those writings. I miss her so much and reading her journal brings back memories for me and allows me to hear "her voice" again.
I'm sure there are some parts of her journal that she probably did not want me to read..or maybe not...but I love her despite her mistakes and things that I don't agree with and things that are embarassing.
I say keep the writings. There are people who love you who will want to read them.
