The importance of catharsis
It is crucial to externalise your emotions.
Therapy has been one of the key pillars in my development. Expressing your emotions verbally, having a different perspective shone on your thoughts and someone empathising with you is essential.
This doesn't have to be a therapist it could be a friend, mentor, parent or even a stranger.
Embrace the feeling of warmth you have when you share your emotions with another human being. Let it wash over you and generate bliss.
This shines a spotlight on the importance for men in particular to talk. Keeping everything in is not a sign of strength. You are blowing up a balloon more and more until it will inevitably burst in the form of a lash out. This may perhaps not be directed at anyone involved even. This has the potential to destroy relationships.
Speak to someone, reach out. It may just save your life.
