July 29, San Mateo, CA: Its fair to say that sometimes I get into emotional ruts. I've defintiely been called moody before, and I guess this week would be an example of that. And even though people close to me could sense that I wasn't at my best, I really didn't know what to tell them about why. But I think it was because I wasn't talking about it. I wasn't even trying. But once I did, after a few minutes, it became much clearer to me. For all the time I spent believing that stifling emotion and masking sides of yourself made you stronger, I sure am experiencing a lot of things that suggest all that compartmentalization was not only a waste of time, but flat out self destructive.
