learning to love myself

so it turns out this 'sharing your feelings' thing seems to be beneficial.

I grew up in an unstable household, there was always fighting, so I always just kept my feelings to myself so as not to cause problems or drama.

my boss was not listening to what I was saying the other day
so I just walked away from him & sent him an e-mail later.

the next day he shows up with a box of candy for me and an apology. 

I am going to try to not stuff my feelings down and not deal with them.
from now on, I am going to start telling people what hurts me, what makes me happy, and what pisses me off.

It worked with my mom too.
I e-mailed her, told her why I was hurt & she apologized.

I also e-mailed my brother and told him why I was hurt.
He called me with some half-assed apology and then hung up on me.....
so that didn't go so well, but he knows what he did was wrong and inconsiderate.

I have to make a conscious effort to not stuff my feelings down.
I have been doing that for 30 years, so it is not going to happen overnight, and I need to be patient with myself.
But that is my goal, to not keep all of my feelings inside and to let people know how I feel.

Sounds so simple, right?

do you ever feel

new or worsening depression, anxiety, or panic attacks; agitation; restlessness; angry or violent behavior; acting dangerously; feeling that people are against you; feeling confused?

Reefie has been really good with the new kittens.  They are all buddies now and nap together frequently.  He doesn't mind when they attack his tail or sleep on him.
