    Confusing For Me

    I always feel first, like I'm on auto-pilot, and then I have to go back and analyze myself to figure out why I feel and act the way I do. It can be very confusing, because often I don't know why I'm feeling sad or afraid. I often make decisions, such as avoiding fears, ...
