Journalling

I was recommended journalling by my therapist when I couldn’t take my high anxiety levels, which I used to find quite anxiety provoking (and sometimes still do) as I used to not be able to stop writing or re reading and used to get bad thoughts and always strive for perfection so it used to be a bit of a vicious cycle for me . Sometimes I feel it helps however it tends to become a form of reassurance and I don’t always feel better for writing it sometimes makes me feel worse. I try to time it to give it some form of control which helps. Does anyone find journalling helpful with religious ocd? I’ve been managing better the past days without journalling but sometimes I feel like I would be better or a better person or be safer if I did write, even if it doesn’t make much sense to think that way. Any experiences to share on this? Thanks
