key word: avoidant

    I'm working this program and am feeling better.
    The key this time around is keeping my self centered in my feelings/emotions without trying to over think it or solve it. This is hard for my inner perfectionist/goodist.
    Accepting that it is ok to be sad. Depression isn't a dirty word.
    My biggest focus is to remember that my personality is avoidant, and if I want to be living pain free I must change that. I am aware that there will be other positive outcomes from being less avoidant and i'm trying to be outcome independant.
    It's so strange to have to fight your inner tendencies - they are trying to protect me from a danger that doesn't exist and they are actually hurting me!!
    This emotional work is not for wimps!!!!

    You are back because you know it is TMS and you know the SEP program works. Maybe read your previous journals and discover what triggered this pain.
