This week on Radically Loved, Tessa talks with Nadine Kenney Johnstone about using writing and journaling as a tool for healing.
Dealing with pain and struggle is never easy. It's natural to feel overwhelmed and lost during your healing journey. Sometimes, you may even forget that dealing with pain affects the people around you. If you cope with it unhealthily, it could strain your relationships. But if you heal properly, it'll also help others heal, which is what writing and journaling do.
