When repressing feelings harms the health

Silence is wise, of that there is no doubt, and it is always very appropriate that before some foolish words, a misplaced comment or an inappropriate expression, we choose to keep quiet and act with more intelligence than those who speak without thinking.
Now, we have to know how to maintain a balance between keeping silence and defending our own needs, expressing what we feel, and stating our point of view.
There are those who remain silent all the time, without expressing their feelings. But did you know that feeling that does not manifest themselves can have an impact on health, and in fact, can be agents that cause diseases?

According to the family and couple therapist of Barcamp Medical, more and more research confirms that the relationship between emotion and the body is very important and that when people do not handle correctly what they feel they begin to somatize in the organism, that is, to suffer from alterations and pains in different parts of the body.

In reality, people often repress their feelings, because from the beginning they are taught that letting them emerge is a sign of weakness and should be done in the privacy of the home.

The behavior specialist indicates that the most guarded feelings are those of anger, impotence, anguish, sadness, anger, envy and guilt; being the masculine gender, the one that mostly goes through this situation, because men socially have not had permission to let their feelings appear, since they are expected to be strong and have the ability to tolerate all the vicissitudes that arise.

People who repress what they feel must first learn to recognize their feelings and emotions, to take on the discomfort without looking for someone to blame and know how to put limits to stressful situations.

In the same way, it is important that they recognize the way in which they can drain what causes them discomfort, which is not always speaking because there are other forms of expression.
