When you’re used to not showing emotions, it can be hard to deal with when you actually have them.
I’m not talking about general excitement, happiness, sarcasm, or clear annoyance. No, I’m talking about real, deep emotions. Ones like love, empathy, longing, and disappointment in someone close to you.
These feelings already aren’t the easiest to talk about (in a healthy way, at least), but when you’re not used to having them at all –– it’s almost impossible.
