Is anythnig ever truly 100% awful?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 5 Jul 24 in Acceptance, Awfulzing, General Semantics |

Is keeping emotions “bottled up” dangerous?

In my callow and shallow youth, I used to subscribe to the “teapot model” of emotions.  You know, our emotional systems are like teapots with water boiling, generating steam and pressure.  If the steam does not have an outlet, or the outlet becomes overwhelmed by too much steam expanding too quickly . . . POW !!!  Explosion […]
