Round and round the wheel spins and here it is, back again… the topic of E.E. (expressed emotion)
I keep reading and I keep looking on web sites and I try to understand when people explain it to me, but my head refuses to absorb it. Talking about how you feel, and expressing emotions is a healthy thing right?
I’ve been in therapy to relearn and express emotions. So what is up with the articles that say it’s a no no for others to talk about what is upsetting them?
Yesterday a confession from my slightly younger brother sent my kid sister into a stomping fit. There was so much stomping that I thought the “Riverdance” troupe had come over.
Today my kid sis apologized for getting angry around me, in the house, and that she shouldn’t have done it. She said she should have been more … NEUTRAL. (bang, right there. The verbiage of our old foe)
Why is all this time and energy going into getting me to talk about how I feel when there are pages and pages about how bad it is for those around me to talk about how they feel?
Someday enlightenment will come.
In the mean time… what am I missing regarding E.E. ?
