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 submerged feeling, revisit them and then make closure with them. In order to do this, we have to leave our comfort zone and venture into our self.
The fear of facing our submerge feelings is not as damaging as continuing to carry the pain of unclosed feelings deep within us.
