No matter how great or how small the event, we were unable to modulate those overwhelming feelings during our darkest periods. We hide these unclosed feelings beneath the surface of our consciousness. It is these submerged feelings which cripple our present decisions, affect attitudes and devour our future behavior. We must find a creative way to walk through our resistance to raise old buried feeling.
A major tip is to revisit emotions you have not dealt with and then make closure with them. Let them go. In order to do this, you have to leave our comfort zone of avoidance and free yourself.
The fear of facing your repressed emotions is not as damaging as continuing to carry the pain of unclosed feelings deep within you.
