Choosing to bottle up one’s struggles, or pretend they’re not happening, is not going to help a person find victory. By hoping the issue goes away, or worse yet- avoiding the issue all together, a person can become so overwhelmed that they can break down fully. Bottled up pain requires that you talk the issue out with someone who will listen to what you’re going through without condemnation.
If you’re struggling with this issue and need someone to talk to please click the ‘chat with a SoulMedic” button at the top of the page. By keeping your issue a secret you are giving it power to destroy your life while it spreads as a cancer into your thoughts, actions, and relationships. Isolation is the worst way to live a full life, because it convinces a person that no one needs to know, that no one really understands, and ultimately, that no one really cares. That’s not true! Life on life community is the best way for a person to flourish in their understanding of self, others and God. However, when we spend all our energies protecting our secret from the world this mindset can create an independence stronghold that feels true but is a lie really killing you from the inside out.
