The Adventures of Feeling Fighter

Battling His Nemesis With Naps, Coffee, And Donuts, Among Other Things
 If you missed part one of Feeling Fighter’s avoidant antics, you can see it here.

I’ve spent most of my life desperately trying to fend off and avoid difficult feelings. These days, I’m making a deliberate effort to spend time with these uncomfortable sensations, observing how they move in my body as I trace them back to my past where they belong. This frees me to occupy the present and respond more accurately to what’s actually happening right now.

It’s an ongoing process to uncouple my childhood defenses from my current feelings. A process that allows me to scramble less to avoid the whole matter, as drawn below.
