Today, Kelly dives into the tantalizing realm of pleasure found in life's struggles and disappointments. She candidly shares her journey of subconsciously crafting dramas to savor the thrill of betrayal, resentment, and the sweet sting of disappointment. Delving into the shadows of her psyche, Kelly unravels how these intense emotions are deeply rooted in childhood experiences and manifest through visceral bodily sensations.
