Friday Feelings – Please Rate My Emotive Abilities

I will admit I’m not very good at expressing my feelings. In fact, I’m a bit of a clam when it comes to emotions, touchy feely stuff, and such. My running partner Run Wiki is the opposite. When she blogged today about how I can’t stand that she’s mushy…well, I can stand it but I don’t know how she does it. How she can say the things she does with sincerity. I will sometimes say mushy things but I make jokes to desensitize them. Or I turn a possible mushy moment into something else. Example…I might say to her, “I liked your post/picture” (yes, that’s me being touchy feely) and she will say “you’re going to make me cry” to which, rather than saying “there there” or whatever is appropriate in such a situation, I will say “stop blubbering, we have to run.” Yes, so emotive, I know…

So, in an attempt to be more expressive about my feelings, I am going to start a “Friday Feelings” (for no better reason than it’s Friday today and hey, the alliteration helps) post where I talk about feelings. Now, I need to get comfortable with this so I am going to start with an easy one. For this week I have put some touchy feely (for me) words on a picture. Perhaps you would be so kind as to give me a score out of 10 depending on how you think I’m doing on the feelings front. Or not. Whatever. It’s not like I care.

Are you touchy feely or emotion-free like me? Do you express your feelings or keep them to yourself? Feel free to share but please no crying. I can’t stand it.

  1. I burst into laughter… blubber one minute laughing the next. I am all over the place. You score a 3 on the touchy feely by my standards… your standards? 10. IF you ever score 10 (by mine) I would check to see if you had been abducted by aliens. I would not change one wonderful thing about you.

  2. I wear my heart on my sleeve on a daily basis. I don’t cry all the time and I am not overly sensitive but I probably say I love things and people way too much, I get excited about little things, and I embarrass my kids by squeezing them too much in public 🙂 I guess beig mushy is just one way I show how grateful I am.

  4. Nothng wrong with, “shut up and run.”

  5. Love the contrast between you two–maybe that’s why it works so well! It’s funny, I grew up in the Midwest where people really don’t express emotions much. I’ve lived on the East Coast my whole adult life, however, and I think most people here are pretty out in the open with their feelings. So what I’m getting at is that I have evolved over the years and become much more open with emotions. I like it this way!

  6. Putting a score directly contradicts the feelings! 🙂 I feel that you are on the right track with getting more in touch with your emotions. It will serve you well!
