Hmm. Why, do you think, keeping a journal actually helps ? FOr many it seems to be the process of translating feelings and thoughts from IN HERE to OUT THERE, and then, being able to more objectively see them, having expressed them in that more concrete form. As you used to write so freelly, it doesn't sound likely that you're scared to express your emotions generally, but maybe there are some specific ideas or emotions brewing which you hesitate to see and examine in print ? And to avoid thecontent, you can easily become over-fussy about the style or appearance of what you write, which are the least relevant aspects of this process.
And FB ? Sometimes those of us who are very organized in how we think and in what we do, find simply freelly writing whatever comes to mind, very difficult to start doing --- we prefer to have a topic set for us by circumstances, ro by someone else, or to have a set agenda ; maybe other exercises in spontaneity might help ?
