What the heck is a grievance journal?
Toxic positivity got you down? Sick of perfectly-coiffed "life coaches" with glowing skin and zero problems telling you to manifest a better life by just "choosing" happiness? We are, too! So sick of it, in fact, that we created the perfect repository for all your existential angst and daily gripes!
Introducing the Grievance Journal! Whether it's terrible drivers, annoying co-workers, heinous in-laws, or humanity at large causing you grief, don't stuff it down — express your rage on the pages within and move on with your interminably long life here in the hellscape we've all come to know and loathe!
Who is this grievance journal for?
Humans! Particularly humans who like to write things on paper and vent about all the ways in which the world has wronged them. It's cheaper than therapy and less dangerous than the incarceration that would surely result if you acted on your darkest impulses instead of just jotting them down in this sweet journal for sourpusses.
What can this grievance journal do for me?
This anger management journal is a safe place for venting about life's annoyances. Writing about your sources of aggravation can help you identify problematic patterns in your life and think about ways you can make changes.
While the positive psychology set loves to wax poetically about "manifesting" your desires, we're big believers in agency. Magical thinking won't change your life, but recognizing patterns and thinking about actions you can take to change what's bothering you works.
No source of annoyance is too small for this anti gratitude journal. You'll be free from the pressure to appreciate things like a beating heart or oxygen, and encouraged to write about your true feelings. Learn to laugh at your pettiest of grievances and exhaust your brain's urge to complain.

- Grievance Journal
I gave this as a gift and the recipient loved it. We loved the wry humor and felt the prompts were much more interesting than any other type of journal we’d seen.
I purchased the Grievance Journal and had low expectation as most things in life are a giant disappointment. Much to my surprise this little black book was perfect. It’s quotes match my dark humor and it’s journaling prompts allowed me to spew some of the vial poison locked in my soul, leaving a little room for some sunshine to sneak in. I’ll likely buy this again as I doubt even this book is big enough for all my grievances , it may take a few volumes.
This journal makes me smile and vent what bothers me. I live it.
First, I didn't expect it to be hardback--that ups the quality right away. The prompts are amazing and thoughtful. There's ample space for both following the prompts and doing my own writing or doodling. The paper is very nice. I really love it.
This journal is awesome, the prompts are great, highly recommend!
