Don’t Wait for the Last Straw to Break!!!

Many people tend to bottle up their emotions. It may be for many different reasons. Perhaps, they are so painful that one desperately tries to bury their feelings to avoid the hurt. Maybe there is a fear that if you allow your feeling out you will be consumed with the emotion and feel out of control. It may be you do not feel you have a right to let it out and associate this with being inferior or weak. Or perhaps you just cannot find the time and privacy to let it out.
Regardless of the reason it is essential you do release your emotions. Failure to do so may cause a buildup of stress which can create a host of all kinds of problems both physically and emotionally. Heart disease, skin problems, cancers, and other aliments are linked to pent up emotions. Anxiety and Depression are common in people who are not processing their feelings.
If necessary make an appointment with yourself or with someone else whether a friend or professional and let it all out! Maybe you need to watch a sad movie, listen to certain music to get the process going. Whatever it is you will feel better and can then deal with and resolve your negative emotion. However, if you keep your emotions in they will not go away and you put yourself in a vulnerable place. Then you get into dangerous territory where the last straw phenomenon can hit at any time. The emotions you kept in explode like a pressure cooker and out they come in an uncontrollable way. Do you really want to be that person that loses it on the poor innocent pizza guy, has a tantrum in the mall or freaks out at back to school night? I imagine not so take appropriate steps to feel your feelings now.  You will be glad you did!
