What is a shared relationship journal?

Journaling is a form of documentation, yes, but it’s also more than that. It’s a way to connect with yourself and review your memories, feelings, and desires. It allows you to approach your circumstances with a sense of detachment and clarity, which can be invaluable in the healing and growth process. Because of this, journaling often plays a key role in meditation, dream analysis, and energy healing.

However, one of the lesser-known benefits is insight into a relationship. This can be done not only by writing in your personal diary, but also by creating a relationship diary together.

The main purpose of a shared relationship journal is the same as any other: it’s a place to gather your thoughts, examine your feelings, and express your desires. But rather than just looking inward, you are encouraged to look at the relationship ecosystem as a whole. Plus, it gives you a written record of things you’re working through and gives you an easy way to reflect on what’s most important to you and your partner.

How to use a shared relationship journal

Keeping a relationship journal together can help you alleviate some of the most common issues couples face, and it allows both parties to keep track of their feelings without having to discuss their issues right away. Each partner can take time to write down the things that affected them during the week, and then the couple should take time to talk about their entries and discuss what, if anything, needs to change.

Discuss what needs improvement

It’s important to focus on the positive and still be able to critique any problems that arise. The goal should be to create a safe space where everyone feels heard. Try to balance your discussion of the changes you want to see with moments of expressing your appreciation and admiration.

When you’re ready to focus on the changes that need to be made, consider the following:

  • Were there moments when either of you felt like you weren’t being heard? This is a good opportunity to see where you need to repeat yourself and where you go on autopilot.
  • What would you like to see less of in the future? It’s unrealistic to think you can change someone, but it’s also important to speak up about behavior that worries you. Take this time to think about what is making you uncomfortable or irritable.
  • Has something happened that you don’t fully understand or that you would like more clarity about? Sometimes when confusing things happen in your daily life, you don’t have time to address them right away. While not every discussion can wait, it can sometimes be helpful to return to these conversations with some emotional detachment and objectivity.

End on a positive note

A shared relationship journal is a great problem-solving tool, but it should also be used to emphasize where your relationship is strongest. It’s important to offer your partner validation and support in the same way you want to receive it from them.

Here are some things to focus on to strengthen your bond:

  • Write down your favorite things about your partner to remind yourself of what strengthens your relationship. It’s a good idea to keep these things in mind no matter what else you’re working on, especially if your goal is to grow together.
  • Make a list of moments when you felt valued and special. It doesn’t have to be a spectacular date or a grand gesture, but it can be. However, this can include things as simple as filling up your car for you or reminding you to get a new meal you wanted to try.
  • What would you like to have done better? Is there anything you can take responsibility for without being asked? Sometimes, taking the initiative and apologizing from a real place is enough.

The benefits of a shared relationship journal

Remember, your relationship doesn’t have to suffer for you to want to grow stronger with the help of a relationship journal. However, if you’re looking to repair and heal as a couple, sharing a relationship journal is a private, affordable way to kickstart the process. Things like couples counseling can be intimidating for a variety of reasons. Luckily, activities you can do at home can encourage honesty and vulnerability and help prepare you to cross that bridge.

Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide what makes a shared relationship journal worthwhile. This can be a way of expressing fantasies, desires, and other topics that feel taboo during normal conversation. Even using the insights of the journal to do the same things in a different way or to communicate more consciously can lead to completely different results and completely transform your relationship.
