When something upsets me, I tend to not talk about it, except with close friends. I seem to be able to talk about a painful past situation after I've processed it and the emotional distress is gone. So talking about something for me means I've progressed to a certain place of acceptance.
I have to wonder if this is different for other people. Do they talk about something right off the bat and stop and move on to other subjects after talking served its processing purpose? If so, is this a difference between introverts and extroverts?
I'm more like the Mars man going to his cave when problems arise. I was happy that my friend, who knows me well could say, my being able to send my email meant I had moved on. It's true, when I'm still stewing about something, I'm more likely to be silent.
I had a longer walk this am with my dog and i can already see i am a little more fit today than i was two weeks ago. It's a good thing that improvement is noticable early or it would be easy to get discouraged. Slow and steady wins the race, right?
