Stop Hiding Your Feelings Give Grief A Chance

    • Relationships

One of the first steps to healing is to accept, acknowledge, and name your emotions. Sadly, what we learn as a society is not how to work with our feelings but how to avoid them, and most of us do that pretty well. If you try to suppress your pain around loss, then your fighting a losing battle because, those emotions need to be expressed or you can lose it, explode, or have a nervous breakdown. Holding onto and blocking feelings will create symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression, in turn, that can cause physical problems such as headaches, heart disease, and insomnia, and we don't want that.
