The ‘no contact journal’ trend on TikTok has become a popular way for people to express their true feelings to others whom they are unable to speak with face to face. Whether it’s a crush, an ex-partner, or someone who has passed away, this trend offers a therapeutic outlet for emotions.
Started in March and gaining popularity in August, the ‘no contact journal’ trend has garnered at least 1.6 billion viewers on TikTok. Participants write down their thoughts and emotions in a journal or through voice notes, allowing them to release their feelings. The trend not only provides relief for the mind, but also creates space in the heart to heal after being hurt someone.
One of the rules of the trend is that the content written in the journal remains private. The purpose is to write to someone with whom the individual has no contact, whether it is choice or not. This allows individuals to express themselves without fear of judgment or consequences.
Many TikTokers have found the ‘no contact journal’ trend to be therapeutic, helping them to process their emotions and move forward. Some have even shared their success stories, such as meeting the person of their dreams after going ‘no contact’ with an ex.
The flexibility of the trend allows participants to use pen and paper, a tech device, or even voice notes to document their feelings. This accessibility ensures that there are no excuses to bottle up emotions, as the trend is both free and widely accepted on TikTok.
Overall, the ‘no contact journal’ trend on TikTok has provided a platform for individuals to express their deepest emotions, offering a sense of healing and closure. As people continue to engage with this trend, it serves as a reminder that it’s important to acknowledge and work through our feelings, even if we can’t directly communicate with the people involved.
