Boxed Emotions


For the past few days I have been unable to deal with a flood of emotions I have been having. So as in the past I have "boxed" them up in my mind and not dealing with anything. I am afraid I can not handle what I am feeling, so if they are boxed away I won't have to deal with it right now. It is so hard to do anything . I guess I'm lucky this happen right now after my eye surgery, because I am just not functioning. I am afraid to feel anything right now.

I think boxing up your emotions is a defense mechanism your mind is applying in order to protect you from these intense emotions. It must seem overwhelming-- I can understand why you'd be afraid to feel anything right now. I think once you are in a better space you will be able to deal with these emotions one at a time and it won't be so bad. But for now allow yourself to protect yourself. Be nice to yourself.

Wishing you well,
NOS

All of us who have been hurt in such tragic ways learn to box up, or what I call, compartmentalize things. It's easier to deal with them and life. But once in awhile one has to face it and deal with it a bit more. I still do that and go through that process. It takes time. Baby steps! :)
