    Than you Georgia for bringing to the table on phlagmatic …that is me…I was not ever able to properly deal with my “stuff” from an early age as I was always in need of “carrying” my parents/family, as they could NEVER (and still can’t) deal with what I’ve been dealing with. I am a terrific listener and Love to be there for others…and love on them; however, I am a true STUFFER..
    Even my best from from High School (over half my life ago LOL) I struggle with in this area of my life (the past 5+ years of chronic pain/fibro/etc) as his comments are “off” to me and I shut down. I am NOT able to really talk and share and it is just all that has been “invested”(and we’ve taken a HUGE step back in our level of friendship) I am usually at the point of “breaking away” as I am so hurt…and it is hard to come around emotionally ..
    In a nutshell, I am grateful for a new perspective and that I need to continue to take out my emotional “trash” (just the up-keep)and “to hold on” Bless you! I look forward to taking in some of your books, too (in time, of course)
    P.S: Thank you Lisa…the Lord continue to bless the works of your hands (and of those partnering with you too) :)
