I've been wondering about this for awhile.
I love journaling..it's a great outlet for me and I find it very therapeutic. However, I was wondering if I am "creating" situations by journaling?
If I really wanted to focus on the law of attraction, would it mean I would have to stop releasing negative emotions via journaling? I really hope not as that would feel like I'd be suppressing my emotions within...

Your statement "I love journaling" says it all. Anything that helps you feel good is getting you closer to everything that you want.
I also love journaling. If I there's a situation I don't know how to handle, I can start writing and the solution often becomes clear.

On this subject, I suggest the book, "Write It Down Make It Happen" by Henriette Klauser, either from Amazon or from your local library. I love to write, and the book helped me direct my writing towards actually helping myself rather than just venting.

I think if you have an awareness that , each time you review something you have journaled either a positive or a negative , you are remembering thereby re-activating the vibration, as there is no past only Now .
Knowing this , perhaps a little different colour ink star to alert you that this particular story once written, you would rather not revisit may be helpfull. ♥♥♥
Here is some news from Dr Joe Dizpensa , one of the guests speakers of the film "What the Bleep do we know "........
There is an emerging field of science called psychoneuroimmunology that has demonstrated the connection between the mind and the body. I can describe what I learned in these simplistic terms: Your every thought produces a biochemical reaction in the brain. The brain then releases chemical signals that are transmitted to the body, where they act as the messengers of the thought. The thoughts that produce the chemicals in the brain allow your body to feel exactly the way you were just thinking. So every thought produces a chemical that is matched by a feeling in your body. Essentially, when you think happy, inspiring, or positive thoughts, your brain manufactures chemicals that make you feel joyful, inspired, or uplifted. For example, when you anticipate an experience that is pleasurable, the brain immediately makes a chemical neurotransmitter called dopamine, which turns the brain and body on in anticipation of that experience and causes you to begin to feel excited. If you have hateful, angry, or self-deprecating thoughts, the brain also produces chemicals called neuropeptides that the body responds to in a comparable way. You feel hateful, angry, or unworthy. You see, your thoughts immediately do become matter.
There is a technique that i sometimes use, it's similar to a technique used in reiki whereby we express an idea then we place it in our hands and blow it with our breath into the air to dispel it to the "universe".
With written work we can perform in a similar fashion, write down on a piece of paper your wish, this can be a wish to dispel negative or to bring good to yourself or any other idea ... burn the paper and toss the ashes into a clear running stream of water, preferably natural, in doing so imagine that your wish is being distributed throughout the universe ... in other words it all depends on intention, you can write things down to dispel them or you can write things down to hold them ... have fun :)

Not at all, that is a applicable way of manifesting. That is one of the first methods of manifesting that I learned. I learned that from a book called, "Universal Mind." R. Ferguson
It talked about using a manifesting journal, much like you are doing. It can't hinder the manifestation only help it.

Love 11 the law of attraction is always working no matter if it's something you want or not. It does not respond to negation. Whatever energy you are sending out whether negative or positive, you will attract in return. But the good thing is, it has been scientifically proven that a positive affirmation is thousands times more powerful that negative affirmation. I suggest you continue writing your journal, but always reread it. After you reread it, rewrite the same thing but this time replace every negative thought, word, or Pharse with a positive thoughts, words, and phrases. You will soon notice that you have nothing negative to write any longer. Once your journal become a source of single minded positive affirmations you will see the law work in more a powerful manor
