I've had a thread kicking around in my head for awhile, and conversation this evening has spurred it on, so hey, let's talk about emotions a bit.
The past few months have been very emotional, deep lows and soaring highs, and as people want to do, I want to talk about them. /1
I'm not actually going to dip into any of those emotions in this thread, btw, this is more about like - talking about them. Feelings about those conversations. Meta-emotions? Anyhow, just stating that up front, not gonna hash out my shit on main. /2
When I think about the people in my life that I can really talk about things with, really be my whole true self, maybe six come to mind (not counting my therapist).
Only one of them is a man, and that's really frustrating. /3
