    This is one thing that happens to me most times. People loves reading my journals so either am there or not they will read it. Either with my consent of not.

    I have yet to share my personal journal entries with any onlookers. I’m sure some some of them would not surprise while others would leave them breathless. I think you learn a lot about yourself through writing and self reflection. I feel that after a close one has passed on would be an ideal time for others to observe to get a more intimate look on the individual.

    My close friends have read it, of course with my permission. Because I definitely won’t allow anyone to read my journal especially without my permission. But I also don’t know if someone has secretly read my journal without permission, it’s just that I’m sure no one has yet.

  • Alex

    Normally NO!!! Especially if the thing written in there is a major info he he. In most cases though I do not mind because I do not leave my secrets on the open anyway. In a general sense Yes but beyond that I rarely allow it.

  • conrad pranze villas

    No, not even my wife. I told her that the journal is for my own keepsake. She may read it once i pass away. She did not agree at first but eventually she understood that my journal is of private property.

  • David Tjoe

    Wow, it’s amazing how I see people here all have their own journals. Personally, no one can read my journal even with my permission. Why? It’s because I don’t have one “lol” and I’ve never even tried to write a personal journal in my life. Sorry…

  • Brain

    Nope I don’t allow that especially if I have on them so secrete I don’t want to let out yet. I also take permission to read others too.

  • Glad

    Well, I use to keep a journal but not anymore. When I had one, no body had access to it except me bacause I considered it private.

  • Meldred Judith

    No, I have never experienced that. The people around me respects each other and respects our privacy too.

  • Rhonda

    Yes, this has happened to me before. I used to have a journal back in my college years. I forgot to keep it and just left it in my bed. My cousin has read it. She never mentioned it to me but I knew that she had read it. Since then I was very careful where to keep my journal.

  • esgyll

    I won’t let anyone read my journal, if I ever got around to writing in one. I fear that my innermost thoughts will drive people further away from me. Even without speaking, I already made people go away. What more if they read my thoughts lol.

  • Grace Wan

    Yes. Someone did that sometimes back. I didn’t like it at all. I felt like it was an intrusion into my private space.

  • Teddy

    This question really got me thinking. I do need to start keeping a personal journal. I am ashamed not to have done so for so long.

  • Shantel

    My journal is saved with a password in my laptop. As such it’s very difficult for anyone other than myself to access it.

  • Anderson

    It is for this very reason that I don’t keep a journal. If anyone accesses it all your secrets could be out.

  • Wilson Jake

    Yes, my guy saw my YouTube video and called me to confirm if truly it was mine. Guys, he was supprised that I could do it.
