Vent. Reflect. Resolve. Writing Is Good for Your Emotional Health.
How do you express yourself when your emotions are hot? Do you yell, cuss, stamp your feet or slam doors?
Throwing a fit may feel like a release in the moment, but it can leave you feeling worse, or doing damage control on relationships.
On the other hand, bottling up strong emotions is no good either. Emotions are energy, and energy cannot be destroyed, only converted. Strong feelings unexpressed will soak into your energy system and cause more problems later. It’s like spilling red wine on the couch. You better get it up quick or it may never come out!
