I read a lot. I love reading and learning. I have been doing a lot of writing lately – mostly dissertation and research writing.
Today, I was reading something and came across this phrase, “emotionally frozen.” I can’t even explain it to you, but it just jumped off the page into my mind. The story that I was reading had to do with some traumatic experiences which left someone “emotionally frozen.”
I think it happens to people. I think it happens to more often than not. I think that emotionally frozen is that chasm in the process of identity formation – that prevents you from moving forward in the identity formation process.
It’s natural. It’s normal. Sometimes people don’t ever transition out of it.
