Thread Name: I am humbled
Subject: RE: I am humbled
Davey, I've heard before about men feeling they must not express emotion. Indeed, some of your unexpressiveness may be part of that stigma. But be careful that you aren't fighting part of who you are. I have come to see and understand that we're all different. My husband isn't afraid to show how he feels, but man is he silent! But it is part of his personality. I, on the other hand, wear my heart on my sleeve and express much, feel pain deeply, experience great highs. It seems to be part of my personality. I have been able to temper my impetuousness, but still I do everything with bravado. Yes, you have keenly observed 'Spaw's personality. I liken mine to his. (A fact of life, whether I like it or not :o)
