“All too often our conditioning has forces us to turn our feelings and emotions off. Social restrictions often made it inappropriate to say what we truly felt or thought. Rather than learning how to appropriately address our true feelings/emotions we were led to believe that if we turned them off, somehow we wouldn’t hurt inside.
Or, sometimes we were forced to turn them off because the pain of feeling was overwhelming. Consequently, we have paid a high price by supposedly turning them off—by always conforming. The price was that we lost touch with our true feelings. If and when we reconnect with those feelings—we face them head on—our growth and progress will be much better served.”
Karol K. Truman, in “Feelings Buried Alive Never Die”
