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.

I purchased this journal for my daughter as a stocking stuffer. The journal is well made and I peeked inside and it’s quite hilarious! She will open this on Christmas morning and I am sure she will chuckle. The shipping was fast especially in this day and age. One week. Nice website easy to navigate and order. Thinking about future purchases.
Just as pictured
Just as pictured. Well-made, funny, cynical, and everything you want it to be.
So far, so good. I just like the feel of this journal in my hands. The writing therapy is good, too. In addition; its good. Did I say how good this journal is? :)
I grieve because I’m happy!
Absolutely LOVE this journal that allows me to be as pessimistic as I need to be. This world is hideous and humanity is an utter dumpster fire and we’re all on the highway to ****. I appreciate being able to point out the truth of situations rather than perpetuate toxic positivity that has gotten so much traction.
Love it! And the perfect gift for that one friend
I am one of those people that functions well on and with gratitide, however, I absolutely can appreciate what this journal brings to the table which is humerous, but also a serious journal for unloading some of that anxiety and anger we experience dealing with this world. I love it. I collect journals and this is def. One of my favorites. I will be buying it for my best friend who is, as the journal says, '..the discerning misanthrope'. ❤️
