What would you want to happen to your personal journals after you die?
I’m currently contemplating arrangements for my possessions and my son in the event of me passing away unexpectedly… (yes that would be making a will then lynne!) and I’m considering what I want to do with all my journals.
I’ve written them since I was 10 years old and plan on doing so until the day I die. They are quite graphic in places and brutally honest. They contain opinions about people and things, that I do not necessarily hold any more and other information that people might find disturbing although perhaps intriguing, fascinating even.
I’ve always thought I would leave them in the hands of my dear sister and friend Ruth and giving her jurisdiction over who to show them to if anyone. But now, when actually committing the idea to paper I’m not so sure. We can never be sure how people are going to take this sort of enlightenment can we? I would hate for there to arise unanswerable questions and for people’s perception of me to be misconstrued. Does it even matter?
I could go on…but I’m rambling so over to you…What would you do?
