Suppressed emotion spills out eventually.
Problem 1: Indulge vs Investigate
How about: Instead of being consumed by your emotions, you begin to cross-examine your emotions?
Problem 2: Outside vs Inside
How about: Instead of ignoring your emotions, you begin you take inventory of your emotions?
Problem 3: Me vs them
How about: Instead of being alone in your emotions, you begin to express your emotions authentically?
Hebrews 4:12 (CSB)
For the word of God is living and effective and sharper than any double-edged sword, penetrating as far as the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 (CSB)
23 Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely. And may your whole spirit, soul, and body be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 8:37-39 (CSB)
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
“Not everyone needs therapy, but everyone might need therapy! We need to destigmatise therapy so that people find freedom to get help they need. If you really want to win emotionally, you need to accept help!” Stephen Ferreira
