It should be our goal as elders, parents, and mentors to demonstrate the importance of expressing our emotions.
Feelings are meant to be felt!
Suppressing one's true self is not just a disservice to the world, it's a detriment to your own health and stability.
Exploring the deepest closet spaces of one's self can be scary at times, but that's where you'll be able to reconcile the skeletons and move on.
Let your feelings pour out. Tears were made to heal. Stop holding back.
