Just how do you respond to a message in which your father, whom you've not spoken to since you were too young to speak, informs you that he's a member of something that amounts to a gang on wheels? I want to be friendly, accepting, blah blah blah, but I'm a little uncomfortable here.
Stopping yourself from whining (expressing a negative emotion that isn't meant to amuse or lead to productive action) is good for interpersonal relations, but it also makes you feel like a caged animal. You find yourself wanting an outlet, sometimes very desperately, and the only one you've got lies at the other end of a long and rocky road.
