It's so hard because I've always guarded my feelings, and especially around men. I can hardly let myself go, emotionwise, and end up zoning out while I recite things that would normally be associated with emotions that make me feel vulnerable (sad, angry, hurt, anxious)

yep scary. that's not a red herring at all. That's exactly what I think this is all about.

SO scary
