But eating durian is so shiok Christin. 😭😭😭

On the other hand, I resonate deeply. I recently asked my dad, "Is it hard to be a father?" He replied, "It's not hard, just put food on the table."

No wonder I always felt so alone during my mom's schizophrenic episodes and I was the one that had to take care of her as a child when she was catatonic. Not a great thing for a child to experience - I do not recommend psych wards and clinics for a developing mind...

Okay time to stop trauma dumping and time to go eat some durian ice cream tomorrow to self-soothe. :P

Getting to the feelings feelings is already so hard for everyone but then keeping in mind that most people can't really even identify feelings with words is just extra 🫠

which then begs the question, how does a society of people living under those conditions really begin to heal? can we ever? 🫠

Thank you for the shout out, Christin! And thank you for prompting me to reflect & ponder my thorny thoughts in the gentlest way.

I’ve definitely felt those funky feelings. Often, I try to pin them to a concrete cause as an attempt to rationalize them; to β€œproblem solve” them away.

And I realize I often conflate funky feelings with emotions. And it’s relieving to now see the nuances between the two.
