My emotions went all over the place and all I could think was, ‘How do I control this?’

He concludes the matter by saying, “I went from emptiness to a turmoil of emotions, so I needed a container to contain myself, with the lid open. My therapist told me, ‘You choose what goes in, the rest stays out. outside'”.

That’s something I wish would change.”
