Yeah, I think it is important to realize that emotions can be mixed. Confused.Maybe people shouldn't be wording it as if it is one emotion we are feeling.
I have to be honest, I looked like one of those people who were 'connected to their body' for most of my life. Very physical, very athletic, and seemingly very self aware. Except for the part of me that was hidden. Once that part was pulled out and I started dealing with it, it was obvious that what connection I did have was lost. I could no longer play tennis, ski, swim, ride a bike, work out, run, so many things. I think that may have had something to do with my regression issues. I regressed to a very young age. So perhaps it's the whole 'part' thing rearing its ugly head that disallowed me to utilize my body with any sense of agency.
I think 'parts' are a bigger thing than many give credit for. Now that my regressed part has seemingly retreated (I am not integrated with this part, there is still much work to be done), I am able to control what is happening to my body much more easily.
It is a heavy subject, that is for sure. This internal/.external figuring out of emotions is really challenging. For once my internal landscape appears for me to be the place to start. Figuring out others emotions is much tougher. And it is more about figuring out what I should be doing in their emotions. I tend to stick around. Based on this 10 year + tenure on misreading others emotions and not reacting in a self protecting way, I am going to say I had best try to understand this better.
