Hello guy's,

My WW has FOO issues. She can't express her feelings, would fake that she is happy and compartmentalize everything. She's doing IC and working on herself.

Friday night, we had a long talk and it didn't end well. Throughout the day, Saturday, she was angry and was showing it. Actually, I was happy that she wasn't hiding her feelings. In the middle of the afternoon, I asked her why she was still angry. She looked at me and said "I'm still searching for a box to put my feelings". We looked at each other and just laughed about this for 2 minutes.

Thought I could share this with you, being able to laugh about some of those things is a sign of progress I think.

Laughter helps so much...keep up with the good work!

Laughter is something that has been hard for me since DD. and he doesn't understand that things he says and intends to be light hearted sometimes hurt me.
