A blocked ending affects reputation.
A long-lasting sickness you just can't get over leads to deep emotions.
Thinking a little more empoweringly, perhaps the notion of blocking emotions around a painful ending or sickness might be a useful one. While we cannot live in denial, sometimes it is useful to set our emotions aside for a while.
Big Boy is ill again, fourth one in six weeks! Today, then, I will take what respite I can get from difficult emotions. I have an Indian Head Massage booked, and will try to get my Dear One to go out for a walk in the weak sunshine shimmering outside. For now, though, it's off to exercise :)
I am grateful for many little ways to relax.
