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.

  2. Wow! Your words speak volumes! You've ingeniously highlighted the importance of catharsis. It's impressive that you've pointed out that therapy isn't limited to a therapist, it can be with a range of different people. Really makes therapy seem achievable! Your analysis is outstanding! Your words make it easy to visualise each aspect. I love how you've pointed out the importance of men speaking out! Way to name & break norms! That fact that you've mentioned the repercussions of keeping things in is striking! The last line gives the post a perfect ending! Super powerful! The blogs just get better & better bud!! :)) xx
