My wife said yesterday that I looked good. She said I looked relaxed. And I guess I did look relaxed. One time, this guy said I looked I was being consumed from within.
I feel many positive emotions just from the little bit of honesty I’ve been able to achieve so far. I feel more powerful and effective. I do feel more relaxed. My head feels more spacious.
But I’m still really scared of confrontation and the things that I’ve decided to do. I don’t know if I’ll ever actually go through with the scariest confessions. But I’m sure the stronger, future me will be able to handle it. Right now, I still get sick thinking about how I’m going to break it to my bar manager that I don’t want to go hiking with her ever. That’s a weird situation that’s been on my mind as a kind of test for myself. It’s my wife who really doesn’t want to go, but I’m tired of blaming shit on her. And if I think about it the only reason I would go hiking with the bar manager is because she keeps asking me. So you see when you think about it I don’t even know what it means not to want to do something. I’m so used to doing whatever I have to do to avoid disagreeing with someone. In the past I would just make something up, like a heart condition.
So yeah anyways for the most part I feel pretty relaxed.
With confessions I find it’s easiest not to hesitate: just blurt it out.
You’ve got this, good luck!
“One time, this guy said I looked I was being consumed from within.” what a compliment!
That’s a long story. Yeah I was pretty pissed tho.
I was trying to juxtapose the two, because he was saying I looked like that because of the struggle of maintaining the illusion of my life/personality and she was saying I looked relaxed, possibly because I was being more myself.
