Why do we restrict ourselves from expressing intense emotions? Is it because that is our way of undermining the importance of such emotions? Is it because we are attempting to satisfy others by saving them from our craziness? Why do we believe we are "crazy" simply for FEELING even when there is no reason to feel? Is it because we do not wish for people to see such aspects of ourselves that we consider a form of ugliness about our character? Why do we remain so hidden about the powers of our mind and heart? Why do we withhold ourselves from showing the world our most vulnerable treasures?
YOU WILL DESTROY YOURSELF INTERNALLY!
As you restrain your emotions, you are creating a fire in your heart. The kind of burning rage that will explode and cause further damage to innocent people. When burying our truths, this causes us to behave in an irrational manner. We may withdraw from connections, and not be as engaged in interactions with others.
When you teach yourself to act as if something has not bothered you, when in reality it pains your every thought, you will begin to get into the unhealthy routine of concealing what needs to be discussed. Without proper communication, the wounds will remain. In fact, without an ounce of discussion, the wound will continue to worsen. There will be no healing without confrontation about your deepest and most invisible feelings.
By disguising your emotions, you are not escaping them, you are simply postponing when they will be revealed. Shy away from producing every excuse in the book to justify your inability to admit to what is occurring in your thoughts. Even if you feel like the world would fail to understand your feelings, convey them so you can free your mind and not have to mentally carry a future burden.
THIS DESTRUCTION WILL FURTHER CAUSE CHAOS TO YOUR SURROUNDINGS.
The veiled feelings and emotions you are not thoroughly capturing will act as a slow poison. Not only will this create so much disaster within but it will also attack those around you. Have you ever caught yourself surprisingly angered at someone for an act that is minuscule in value? Have you ever witnessed a loved one reacts in a questionable way that made you wonder whether or not their groundless irritation was caused by someone else?
Silencing our emotions and feelings will lead us to take out such anger, hurt, and annoyance on others who are not the sources of our inner demons. It will be disturbingly easy to find other places to store our emotions that we are too busy restricting people from seeing. Sometimes we become so consumed in the efforts it takes to suppress our feelings that we are blind to the effects it has on those it is not meant to.
Emotions are our soul's way of asking for a sense of guidance and understanding. Release them before you find yourself in the burdening cycle of endless pain. Expressing such pain can begin to heal you.
