Gosh we are all filled with compressed and repressed emotions in this TMS family. I have had a firm control on them from an early age and the only time I allowed myself to let my defenses down was with my Dogs over the years my life lines. The emotions I see coming up again and again in my journeling is Fear,anger, grief, sadness, anxious and overwhelmed. I feel betrayed by those I loved and let down and I work too hard to be like do to much and ask too little. I value myself low and judge myself harshly I bully myself as I was once bullied inside and outside the house as a child. I am learning this is a long road with a lot of work on me and my emotions and reactions but I am doing it and that gotta be good.
