Hmm.... Where do I hold my emotions. I guess a better question is where don't I hold them? My emotions like to get stuffed into my stomach, creating a mess in the digestion department. They like to hide in my heart and chest, trying to convince me I'm having a heart attack (I'm smarter than those darn emotions, though!) They like to hang out in my neck, and they hate when I see my chiropractor, because he crashes their party there. Same with my low back. My emotions pretty much hate my chiropractor, because he tries to crash any party they've planned in any part of my body.
It used to be easy to keep my emotions in check. I just kept stuffing them down, eating my emotions instead of food. That worked for a long time, too. Except for one problem. When I ate too many emotions, and too little food, well, the emotions snuck out of my pores and created a rather uncomfortable situation upon their escape. That, and my body needed to eat more than emotions, despite what my brain thought.
Now I'm working through this terrifying process of actually expressing emotions instead of eating them. I should say, appropriately expressing them. It is not easy work, though my therapist has said that it does get a little easier over time. Right now it's such a new skill, like, say, learning how to ride a skateboard, that I've got a lot of scrapes, bumps, and bruises all over. But I'm trying. And waiting for the easier part to arrive!
