Back when I was younger I had an extremely difficult time holding conversations with people who are in survival brain state and not using their executive functioning. I've always been fairly logic-driven and even more so when I was younger. I was very black and white in my thinking. As I got older I learned about trauma and the brain and why people don't always respond to things the way I would and why that's ok, and it's helped over the years. It's rearing it's head again tho. I think as I'm struggling more and more to gain footing with my own mental health, I find myself reverting to what I know which is logic, facts, etc and having a hard time coping when someone is coming from a more emotional place. And there's nothing wrong with coming from an emotional place. I'd argue its a healthier response than mine lol, but I feel like I'm regressing and shutting down.
