Thank you again for your reply.
I do have a tendency to over-think and over-analyze things. I'm constantly in my mind, analyzing things. I believe it will take some practice for me to get used to feeling rather than thinking.
I've had a lot of practice blocking out my feelings. So, I suspect it will take practice to stop ignoring them.
