I was raised to hide emotion. If I showed fear or anything, I was beaten for it. No mercy. I have embraced emotional displays in the sense that I totally support others showing their emotions. I just can’t share mine. There’s a block in my brain that just won’t let the emotions out even though inwardly I feel intense emotions
I clammed up for many years and suffered greatly but
I am free now a turn and change of mind and heart was needed in my case
What a range of emotions in that picture!
Happy, sad, happy, surprised, sad
