My father called me, wanting to know how things went, as we began conversing and I provided some more detail he asked me: "so what does this do in practical terms, what more does this give you? he was polite however I could sense his Energy, it felt Judgmental, Not believing somewhat challenging.....I proceeded to try and muster this into words (not feeling very comfortable that I could explain this into words that he would understand) finally not sure I really accomplished explaining this affectively :( this article has helped and I will bring this up with him again :) maybe more than once if need be explaining to my father I am doing the best I can with the tools I have to try and express what are very strong uncommon feelings that I am new to feeling myself :)
