It is hard to do sometimes because often times your feelings get stepped on and run over and ignored.
But it was how I was raised, it's all I know!
And maybe I am wrong for thinking this, but I feel like by now my feelings should have calloused a bit. Like they should not be so "feely". But still they get hurt and I always think that maybe NOW I can be less sensitive because I can anticipate that in certain situations, feelings get hurt.
But the thing about that is that I can't anticipate anything because there are new things that happen and I am often surprised by how I find my feelings getting involved with my new sitch.
It creates unease.
But surprises are good right?
I mean, good things can come of new things right?
I am going to have to get back to you on this, my ham sandwich just arrived.
