Bookshelves

I met with my therapist today and I talked to her about how I learned to regulate my emotions by shelving them.

I tend to avoid intense emotions by packing them up and putting them on the shelf.

I practiced experiencing emotion today in her office.

I hated it.

I am trying.

It was just hard.

I don’t want to deal with how scared I am about my future, amongst other things.

Anyway, it was a good appointment really. Just uncomfortable.
