“I don’t think I am doing it right” , I hear.
“All your tips to understand my emotions and let them out are not working”, I am told.
“This is useless! I am not stopping being angry”, I listen.
But, he is not really hearing himself telling me…
“I am feeling disheartened today. It was hard at school and I feel so angry at you”
“I feel so sorry for what I told you earlier, but I truly was angry”
“I am feeling so sad and angry right now….I am not sure why!”
Yes son, boys..men…find it difficult to express and let go of their emotions and you might think you haven’t understood it, but you are doing it. I know you still don’t believe me when I tell you this, I know you expect instant results, but, it took me 35 years to get where you are now!
Be proud of yourself, you got this!
