Current Mood: contemplative contemplative
Current Music: Bjork, Post (don't know which song)

It'd be much easier to paint here at the cafe if the bozo at the other end of the table didn't shake his laptop around so much. Grrrr.

And while I'd made a joke the other day about being emo, the following thing has been rolling around in my head for the past day: when rattling off my tales of woe whence my perhaps-miserable childhood arose to Frauline Shrink, she said that I mentioned them really dispassionately, that my face was pretty blank when recounting such things, that I didn't act "upset".

I don't know how to react to that. I don't think I'm terribly upset when telling of my past miseries; I mean, what can I do about them now? Whether it's repression, acceptance, or something else I really don't know.

Fortunately, I'm still at the "my skills suck" stage so that anything even remotely recognizable or interesting looking is encouraging. :)

It's a good thing that you don't get terribly upset about past miseries - there's no reason you should go around for the rest of your life carrying that baggage. Everyone has crap happen to them throughout their lives. You need to accept that fact and leave it behind you. It sounds like if you're not upset about things in the past, then you've at least accepted these things, if not gotten over them. Good for you.

just a perfectly healthy recognition that the past is the past and not much can be done to change it now. I'd assume that most people seeing this person have an irrational emotional connection to the past, so they aren't used to seeing a healthier reaction.
