It is not good to keep certain emotions inside, especially feelings of sadness, worries, fears or negative thoughts. One of the reasons I love blogging is that while I get to meet like minded people and help spread mental health awareness, It also helps me share my feelings and not keep them bottled up inside.
My experience has been, that by keeping them to myself it has actually intensified my feelings thus, making them more difficult to deal with.
Sharing them helps me understand, make sense of the emotions as well as lessen the stress.
"Feeling are not facts," We have heard this time and time again, and for the most part this is true, for example in the past I have learned by sharing with other's that many of my fears were unrealistic and then, there were times when I thought that my unfortunate circumstances would remain the same until I was reminded that I have options, and I did.
When you keep feelings of unease and emotional discomfort inside, it can cause anxiety, stress and depression so it is very important to share them with someone, a relative, friend, support group, social network or therapist.
