> Sometimes when I'm feeling upset I express things over on the writing board. I think that there is more leeway there with respect to expressing real hurt and distress. To spend some time really trying to describe the feeling or whatever. Sometimes expressing it with poetry by analogy or whatever can be a kind of theraputic / working through thing to do. It helps me sometimes at any rate. It can be a hard thing, yeah.
Thanks for the suggestion Alex. It's been years since I've written poetry or stories. I think I will try it out.
