Have you ever faced a situation where you wanted to shut something in you but just can’t do it. Harder you tried to suppress a feeling in you, more you suffered. This may have happen with you in your life at some point or the other.
Consider you are trying to stay away from a person you love for whatever reasons, you will find it difficult. If you truly love somebody its near to impossible. It’s like a Quicksand, more you struggle to get out from the pit faster you’ll drown. There’s no way you can get out of the quicksand, and struggling just make it worse.
So how can somebody escape from the Quicksand? Maybe you can’t escape it with your own.You need external help. Say you get a rope or a stick thrown at you by someone as a gesture of help. You have to grab onto that. It’s better to be alive than to nurture your ego, that you are just fine by yourself.
So whenever you feel like shutting down your feelings, don’t do it abruptly. Give some time to heal. We are humans not robots. Feelings should be treated wisely. Otherwise they can bring chaos and many unanswered questions you may not want to deal with.
