I have a wealth of emotions. So much, that, I do not invest it properly. Hence, at times I end up spending a lot of energy on stuff that is not worth it. And sometimes, I take too little time to think and react and end up not giving something adequate time.
I recently learned that there are two kinds of feelings that are not good for someone like me.
- Suppressed feelings: These are feelings we consciously choose to push down. Like for example, suppose you had a huge fight with someone but you also have a meeting at work in the next 10 minutes. Then you consciously push down the anger and head into the meeting.
- Repressed feelings: These are feelings that we are unconsciously pushing down. Suppose say, you feel sad and feel like crying. But everyone around you says, you should thoughen up and tells you to stop crying then you end up not addressing the feeling of sadness at all.
Repressed feelings are more toxic as they keep coursing along in your system and sometimes mix in to a deadly cocktail.
I think, I am going to try, flushing out my system and draining out all the named and unnamed feelings that I feel, on a regular basis, can be one way for me to feel better.
I won’t know until I try, I guess.
Until I Let it Out.
