We are taught to hide our emotions. Nobody wants to see you cry on the job. Nobody wants to hear about your stress. Everyone gets stressed!
But, wait a second. We have emotions for a reason, right? Emotions are a natural part of being human. They’re how we connect with others and share our feelings. Emotions are good. It’s when we repress these emotions that things start running afoul in our lives.
When you feel angry at someone, tell them! When you’re grieving the loss of someone or something, talk about it! Easier said than done, I know. But when we keep our natural emotions bottled up inside, we are creating unnecessary pressure for ourselves that will eventually explode in an unhealthy way. Let it out! Talk. Communicate with those you trust about how you are feeling. Emotions are a beautiful part of humanity. Start sharing yours!
