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.

It’s ok to be negative too!
It is actually refreshing to have a journal that expresses how I REALLY feel! All these journals that want you to write about ways to manifest a better life, how to stay positive, happiness jammed down your throat. Most of us are unhappy because of things that are less than fantastic. I appreciate the fact that I don’t have to pretend and can write about what’s bothering me. Without this feeling like I’m being a negative person. Good writing comes from the bad parts of life not always the happy ones too! Thanks for giving me a place to freely express my lack of appreciation for the little things that block my path!
Tired of all the Positive Thinking!
This is a hilarious journal of writing prompts centered around grievances! I have so many people I want to gift this forward to, but not until I have had some time with it myself!
Best birthday present ever
My friend laughed so hard she cried. It was a hit!
Purchasesd the "Grievance Journal" for myself and absolutely love it. Defintiely needs to be burned though, otherwise I know people will share excerpts at my funeral. Great idea. Clever, funny and a perfect gift for someone that has everything. I guarantee they don't have this. I also think this would be a great "anonymous" gift to give to someone you hate. A subtle hint... ;)
I got this book for my very goth daughter and she loves it!
