Even the quietest person in the world is not able to carry emotions inside him quietly, for we all have to let steam out every now and then and put into words what is suffocating us from within. In fact, there will come times when you probably know words will suffocate you, hurt you internally, but you still don’t know how to express your feelings. As if you were choking and your heart wouldn’t let you breathe.
It may even make you think that the words aren’t accurate enough to convey how you really feel. This is perfectly normal. We just have to try to learn to breathe deeply. We’ve all gone through something like this before, but I can tell you it’s not going to stay that way forever: believe it or not, the pain bubble will break and you’ll find a way to relieve the pain and feel better.
Failure to express emotions can make you sick
There are so many emotions that we can experience internally. Whether they are positive or negative, they need to be let out so we can channel them properly. Otherwise, they will stay inside you, becoming a nuisance and taking energy away from you.
Our bodies and minds must express the information we gather from our experiences. If we don’t do that, we can get sick: for example, alexithymia is a condition in which a person has difficulty expressing their feelings verbally.
If you feel completely overwhelmed and don’t know how to move forward, maybe it’s time to let the words speak for you or even seek help – not because someone would tell you what you should or shouldn’t do, but because you would get the understanding all of us need.
Chase words that want to escape
It’s weird that just when you feel the urge to say something, you can’t do it because the words seem to escape and don’t let you speak! However, if you are looking for the power to chase them, you will catch them.
It’s possible that just when you’re about to talk, you just manage to stutter, your sentences are fumbling and your mouth feels dry. Or maybe instead of talking, you’re trying to write down your thoughts, but they just don’t seem to be coming together, and in the end, you’re amazed at what’s on paper.
But words that stifle you have to come out because it is helpful for you to listen to them and accept them. Only when you express them will you be able to receive them and act on them in your life.
Tools for releasing vapors
Releasing vapors is one of the most difficult processes we have to face as human beings because we have to expose ourselves to everything we suffer to see really up close what is afflicting us.
But there are some methods that can help release emotions and help you find inner peace:
- Be your own advisor: if you believe you have the ability to be objective in analyzing yourself, dealing with the pros and cons of your own affairs is probably a good calming exercise for you.
- Crying: I always say it’s helpful to cry, but I think it’s necessary to understand that it’s only good when we realize it’s reassuring us. Give yourself a chance to cry until there is no more crying, but after doing so, try to draw conclusions from it.
- Strive for a calm and calm atmosphere: the best way to approach problems is in a calm and calm atmosphere. If you’re in a bad mood, do something that relaxes you, like listening to music, and then look for the words you need to pronounce.
- Surround yourself with people who love you: it’s obvious that it’s important to find someone close to you who rejoices in your accomplishments and who also feels compassion for you for your failures, fears, and insecurities. I’m sure there’s someone by your side who doesn’t want to criticize you, with whom you’re free to talk and be heard.
