Have others experienced this?
Yes, I hit that place about 20 pounds ago. I had to work it out. I worked it out with, what for me at the time, was a huge fitness goal. It wasn't grueling, I merely walked 100 fitness miles in 45 days. And during those walks I walked alone, no headphones, just me and me... and I sorted through all my mental garbage. I talked to myself, sometimes, even out loud. And I got through my hang-ups. I imagine therapy would have done the same but it didn't burn as many calories...
