In today’s Women’s workshop, two men came from the very beginning, and the women didn’t get together easily. When it was a little bit past the start time, the women also started to gather… After all, there were three men and five women in the session.
The topic was “the proportion of emotions”. The idea was to have the participants examine themselves about how they feel in their daily lives.
For a while after a family problem arose and they came to me, they often talked about negative emotions such as anxiety, sadness, anger, and frustration, but as they went through the workshop and counseling, their emotions seemed to change to positive ones little by little. Feelings such as relief, satisfaction, curiosity, and gratitude… will increase. I believe that such changes can be grasped because many people with family problems have attended the workshop.
By the way, with three men in the room, the atmosphere of the place seems to be calm… in a way, the workshop seems to be silly and interesting.
After the workshop, we had lunch of pasta with bacon and asari clams… I forgot to take a picture… And after lunch, we talked endlessly… and ate dinner… and by the time I got home, they were still talking.
Before I went home, the task I gave to everyone was to make eggs stand. Only this time they were quietly and seriously staring at each egg.
