This thread seems like it was written specifically for me.
I was having a really hard time last night and got some great advice in "New to Poly" that included checking out these posts.
I don't like emotional pain (does anyone?) so for the most part, I have dealt with it by stuffing it down and pretending it doesn't exist. This, however, is NOT a good way of dealing things. It seems easier, in that moment, to not feel or deal with it but does not work so well over the long term.
These posts gave me the encouragement I needed to continue feeling the feelings and the reassurance that I could deal with them.
