There are days when feelings flow easily but finding those right words to say out load or put on a page leaves us struggling to catch up – not because we became suddenly mute, but ‘processing those thoughts’ to wrap our arms around their meaning before letting ourselves actually voice them.
That’s another matter entirely.
Depth of feeling and depth of meaning are so often confusing, to know what triggered what got triggered and whether it is something important and new or something automatic and old.
Which begs this question: “as we encounter new experiences and new people, are our feelings new – or just old ones-triggered because something or someone is reminiscent of something from a long time ago?”
Who can be objective enough about their own life to split that hair?
