Have anyone else experienced people changing around them while you’re going through a healing journey?

Recently my dad passed away 6 months ago. I didn’t think it affected me much but it did. I was angrier than usual. I was snappy at people. I didn’t give my self time to grieve. I went right to work even when I found out he passed away. I then went homeless 3 months later. I was living in a nice hotel close to my job. I forgot to mention I was working and in nursing school.

the company I work offers free counseling and seeing a psychiatrist if meds are needed. So I decided to do the free counseling. My therapist and I clicked from day one. She called me out and told me I was lying to myself and I had resentment.

in the African American community it’s not popular to see a therapist or tell strangers your business. But I’m about breaking generation curses. She asked simple questions but they dug deep into my childhood.

As I’m healing and being happy from within and learning to not only have emotions but be comfortable showing it because as a man I was taught men don’t show emotions. We struggle and get through it. After a month everyone noticing big changes. Everyone see how happy I am naturally I’m actually smiling more.

The problem I’m having that I wonder if it’s normal. As the inner child in me is healed and I’m becoming a better man. The women around me tend to become angrier or depressed and not want to talk to me as much. Some that see they can’t get to me and I no longer react to things they do. They are paranoid now and or not wanting to talk much. Regardless I’m still happy.

Im just wondering will people change up as you go on your healing journey if so why? I’m happier than I ever been. I deal with stress better now.
