Lol
People like you are hacker's delight!
If a service you use is hacked people like you will make them more money than others that don't reuse passwords.

When a service (eg website, social media, etc) is hacked, they steal database of password hashes (if the website saves passwords securely then they're not stored in plaintext, but are salted and hashed so that only the correct password will decrypt it. For example if your password is "password" it will be stored like this:
XohImNooBHFR0OVvjcYpJ3NgPQ1qq73WKhHvch0VQtg=
) and with rainbow tables and other cryptographic processes they'll try to decrypt it to plaintext.

If they're successful and they're able to convert it to plaintext then they'll retry the username (usually email address) and password with other services.
For example if your Amazon account gets hacked, they'll use the email address and password you used for Amazon to try to log in to Facebook, Gmail, Yahoo, Spptify etc.
So for people like you that reuse passwords, they'll be able to get logins for different services and they'll group them and sell them in the darkmarkets on the web.


You say they can't guess your password, it's not humans that will guess but computer programs, if you are targeted by people with capabilities then they'll just programme computers to keep on trying different passwords till they get the right one (this is called brute forcing), and depending on the password length, no of computers and processing power, and character set it can take from a few milliseconds to billions of years to guess.


Moral: Do not reuse passwords.

What will you do if you lose your diary?
or you can't get to it but need a service that requires a password urgently?
If the diary is in your bag and you're traveling with it and the bag gets stolen then what next?

Did you read the part where they wrote the master password isn't saved on their servers?
If they manage to hack them then the data they get will be useless because they don't have the key to decrypt it.

Physical, Yes!

Can't get misplaced.

Stolen, the assailant wouldn't know what to do with it, its encrypted!

I'd resort to a backup to retrieve the informations!
