How Suppression Kills You


Like a coin that has two sides, each of our lives are filled not just with ups , but some downs as well. Sometimes people aren’t able to with these low phases.  When you’re happy your more cheerful, content and positive. On the contrary, during a low phase , if you don’t learn to  with yourself in the right way it can really break you.

Problems crop up in each of our lives, but the way we by it and go about it makes a lot difference .There could be certain things in life that you aren’t able to express or open up to others. Reasons may be many such as: you may wonder what the other person thinks about you (image conscious), scared due to people judging you for who you are, will they still accept you and stay with you after confiding, will they  empathize with you or will they be feeling happy knowing your problems in life.

The repercussions of suppressing your worries and not sharing your problems can cause you to isolate yourself from others, you tend to be within yourself, you lose out on friendships, relations, and slowly will notice that these people also start detaching you from their lives. KARMA. The blame is all yours because, ignorance is intolerable after a certain .

Things start affecting you at a social level, and eventually you shall perceive that you’re also affected at a personal and emotional level.  When you’re not able to seek help and guidance from others on your problems and instead remain to be silent , you start changing as an individual. You would observe lot of mood variations, sudden break of emotions, being negative on others positivism, assume things and start building your world within those assumptions that starts killing you slowly.

In short you tend to things with a negative outlook. Your mind becomes a devil’s workshop. Suppression is like a slow poison , if you don’t try to get out of it, it can be proved fatal for your personality, you may lose on a lot of precious things in life.Pour your heart out to someone you trust and seek their guidance. You may not realize what you are missing out by not doing so.

There could be several reasons to suppress your emotions but think about its consequences and ask yourself if it is worth damaging your life when you already have options to get yourself out of it.

  1. When things are working out for you and you are filled with the zest of life, Its easy to get connected with others. But when you break down emotionally, physically and financially, its hard to keep the pep talk going. Detachment is not a choice but a way of life. Experiencing loneliness & tragedy becomes ones truth. I just happen to be in the opposing side of the quadrant on this one.

    • I can empathize with you in this one. I understand that ‘you are’ because of what ‘you go through’. Needless to say, at some point of time each one goes through such traumatic situations (your not alone), but how long will you blame your situations for the misery. At some point you gotta come out of that shell.
      We humans are just like the flowers in the garden, withour some sunlight and water they are life less.Similarly, we also need some kind of helpat an emotional level to bring us back into our lives ,and make our minds stable enough to sort out the physical and financial dilemmas. Its easy to play the victim’s role, instead find solutions to get out of it. Due to our circumstances our way of life changes,i totally agree with you on that, but after a certain point its upto whether you want to continue that way of life or make it a little better.
      My post could be an awakening call for you, especially because of what you are going through.
      Have faith like you do now.
      And i pray that all your worries fade away from your life soon. Take care 🙂 🙂

  2. I find it really difficult to share my problems, because I feel that by bringing it out into the open, I’m validating it. If I keep it to myself, I seem to deal with it quite well.


  3. Always Clear Your Chest. Do it with Someone you Trust. Like Your BESTIE.
    Or if no one, talk to God in the temple, in your home, in your bed.
    Never keep things bottled up inside you, cause this is one of the root problems for Physical and Mental Sickness in your future.

    • Thank you Steve 🙂
      Well, this post is inspired from what i have seen others going through more than my personal life. A writer’s writings are influenced by his/her personal life as well as the life of people surrounding them.
      And yes, i agree, expectations is the root cause for all problems. But if we humans dont expect, we ain’t one! What to do ! 😉
      Thanks for reading 🙂

  6. Sometimes reading a post like this is what can be really instrumental to a big change in life. You’ve wonderfully constructed this post and I must say that you’ve proved that the problem to nearly all solutions in life lies in and around us. Lastly the importance of being expressive, it’s something we human know but still fail to implement in our lives purely because of our ego and insecure mentality, the day we overcome this, the world will be a better place. Really enjoyed every bit of it.
