Have you ever tried to push a ball under water?
I did. And I noticed two things.
1. It needs a tremendous amount of strength.
2. Once one lets go of the ball, it comes up with double force.
Just as little as you can keep a ball underwater permanently, you can suppress your feelings permanently.
It is simply not possible and also harmful.
Emotions are energies in our body. They need to be accepted, lived, and let go.
As we push our emotions away, the energy builds up and our body and soul react. Fears, sleep problems, back pain and suchlike are the result.
Let your emotions live.
