What are you supposed to do with unpleasant emotions?
I'm not trying to be angsty, this is a legitimate question I'm wondering about.
Part of me wants to say, "Repressing emotions is bad!" and revel in cathartic misery. Nothing more therapeutic than yet another round of sobbing, right?
Part of me says, "Emotions hurt!" and wants to build a thick wall around my heart and just...stop feeling.
I know there's gotta be a balance somewhere. Because I don't want to be a stone wall. I know if I don't let myself feel some sadness, I cut myself off from feeling joy later.
But I also know if I spend my days curled up in a ball crying, or falling apart at the most innocent reminders, I won't ever be able to move on with my life.
Oh boundary, where are you?
