[THREAD] I want to take a moment to talk about repressing, especially in regards to emotions. We all do it to a certain extent whether it is because we don’t want to bother our loved ones or because we don’t feel safe opening up to the people we currently know.
However, repressing emotions comes with some issues. Let’s take all our mental capacity as a bathtub. Everyone’s bathtub is going to be different and different sizes. But no matter what, at one point or another it is going to fill up and that is when mental health issues start!
When we repress our emotions, we don’t drain that bathtub until it overflows. Externalizing acts as a drain. It allows us to take all those thoughts and emotions that are inside of us and take them outside. That can be accomplished in a variety of ways.
Talking to people, journaling, crying, talking to yourself, your pet, joining a support group, and a variety of other ways, as long as it takes everything that we feel from inside to outside of us. Very often, when we suffer from depression and anxiety,
we have a hard time externalizing, and that can contribute to worsening everything. Obviously, repressing our emotions is just one side of our mental health but it is a very important one. If you are having a hard time externalizing, experiment with different forms to see which
one works for you. It is going to prevent things from getting worse. Feeling vulnerable and sharing our experiences is so important and a good habit to get into even if it is just as a prevention method and to keep ourselves psychologically healthy 😊
