Let’s not taco ’bout it

Had a tough day, lots of unresolved emotions. Talked about it. Worked through them. Resolved them. Thankfully I had someone to talk to.

But when I got home I was so guilty I couldn’t sleep. My family wanted to talk about it some more. I said no.

At a certain level, it’s good to talk about it, but this hits a sweet spot when nothing more productive will be gained and you have to take a break. It’s tough to walk this line between ignoring problems and wallowing in their muck.

I hope you know that I’m not trying to complain / It just gets hard to explain / To people that I know / And the kids who come to shows / That I just don’t want to talk about the office today Wingnut Dishwasher’s Union

Update (7/28/2014): Yesterday I was able to talk about the “bad day at work” with my grandma freely and realized that in the moments when things are undefined in my head it’s hard to talk about them with question-asking people. But after a while, things become a cohesive story, and I can talk about them. I just need my alone time to process and let things gel.

  1. Totally true, sometimes you don’t want to talk about that thing again whatever it is. But remember your “family” knows you the best. And they can help resolve the inner turmoil with your interests in mind. Or at least that’s what happens to me. I hide stuff on the back shelf for ever… it’s always better to get it out eventually. Good luck with whatever the issue was. 🙂
