What Makes Me Feel This Way
Growing up with human emotions
Feelings are everywhere and you can’t stop them. Read the back cover and you can see that this is about accepting your feelings (and enjoying them!). Not a whole lot of skills for coping with these feelings, but you do get to acknowledge they exist. I guess that should be something. Evidently Dad is upset about traditional gender norms being ignored, Tony thinks he is not “nice” because he is annoyed with the traffic guard for some reason, and Jimmy is embarrassed about sex. No advice on what to actually “do” with said feelings.
Well it is 2016 and I am still annoyed about people having to adhere to old fashioned gender roles, and I can’t always be “nice”. (Depending how long I am on the desk, I become less “nice” after about 7 hours.) I am also not embarrassed about sex, unless it is a patron telling me about his/her sex life (which actually happens more often than I like). So, there you go. Life sometimes sucks, kids. Are you happy now?
