I can be emotionally invested in a program. Maybe that’s why I’m addicted. I can express my emotions more through the characters. I know I’m comfortable around Dave as I don’t try hiding these telly emotions from him.
Even my mum saw me the other day with tears streaming down my face. If it was, what even last year, I would have tried to hide these years from anyone.
I remember watching telly with my mum growing up. Long Lost Family for example, gets me very emotional. But I was fighting back the tears. Why? Fear. Embarrassment. Allowing myself to show my emotions real or telly related is apart of me. I shouldn’t be fearful or embarrassed by them. I need to embrace them.
