Stop Repressing & Start Expressing

When you have a strong emotional reaction, such as anger, that energy has to go somewhere. It just cannot sit still for long.

If it is not released or expressed through your words or actions, it will inevitably get stored in your body.

The longer your suppressed emotions stay stored in your body, the more toxic they become, which can lead to a depleted immune system and illness. So what do you need to do to stay healthy emotionally and physically?

  • First, understand the difference between release and communication. When you release your emotions, they are not directed at another person, and no one else is needed. For communication, of course, you will need a willing participant.

  • Second, be aware that with healthy emotional expression, no one gets hurt, including you.

  • Healthy release includes physical exercise, crying, anger work, and other energy release processes.

  • Healthy emotional communication includes conflict resolution skills, and many other important relationship management skills. Learn more in the Healing Anger ebook series.

Think of it this way...

Emotion is energy in motion...e-motion. Like flowing water, if it doesn't move, it will become stagnant and create toxicity. So keep those emotions moving!
