Think of a person in your life from whom you hide your emotions. What is preventing you from telling this person how you feel? I hide my emotions from my parents and siblings in general. I've been more open about talking about my emotions with them over the past few months. But, for years I've never felt able to express negative emotions about stresses of my daily life with them. I'd just usually suffer through those moments on my own. I'm working on being open about these things with them. But, I know now that that's added to the repression of emotions over the years.
