One thought on “8 Steps to Stop Numbing Your Emotions

    I have spend all of my life (I am 65) being told how not to feel. I grew up in a home where there was an active alcoholic (dad) & a brilliant (so she thought) co-dependent mother along with 7 siblings. If someone wasn’t telling how not to feel, they’d just ignore me. They didn’t want to hear about it or they didn’t have time. Dad was rarely home & mom was overloaded with kids to tend to. I was the oldest. I can vividly remember this behavior at the age of five years old. I have been through therapy several different times & I can’t believe they did the same thing. A lot of times I was overwhelmed with several feelings at once not knowing which to focus on. This article was great. I may check out the book.
