πŸ“ The Private Space Left Fallow

I feel that we are all made up of different fragments of self often existing in different spaces. One easily overlooked is the private space. A plot of land often left fallow. For example, the personal diary. As Austin Kleon suggests, such a medium offers a good place to have bad ideas:

I find that my diary is a good place to have bad ideas. I tell my diary everything I shouldn’t tell anybody else, especially everyone on social media. We are in a shitty time in which you can’t really go out on any intellectual limbs publicly, or people β€” even your so-called friends! β€” will throw rocks at you or try to saw off the branch. Harsh, but true.

Personally speaking, I find the challenge is that such spaces are the last to get tended to, yet often the most important in regards to mental health.
