Thank you for your response.
There is a lot of good stuff there.
I like the idea of sitting with the positive smile event to focus on.
I will do that on my days off this week.
I spent a little while tapping with EFT on my resistance to feeling my emotions.
What came up for me was this.
Why feel the emotions?
All I remember from the past is the negative.
Anger is destructive and violent.
Any joy was always taken away.
I don't need the pain.
If I am numb I am safe.
I know in my head that if I connect with the emotions and events from the past I can clear them and find a lot more joy and fulfillment in my life.
Getting that to my gut is a little more of a challenge.
BUT I know it can be done.
And I AM going to do it.
I will start with the smile moments and go from there.
You have said that I should write Jeff.
How do I do that?
I see him on the forum in different posts.
How do I get him to respond to mine?
Thanks again for all of the good advice that you have given me.
You can be as long winded as you want.
You say nothing but helpful things.
Have a great day.
