Bottling Up Your Emotions is Not the Answer

For those of us with major depression, one thing we tend to do is bottle up our emotions. We say "I'm fine." when we're not. We pass up expressing happiness or anger because it takes psychic and physical energy to do both.

What I've come to learn, however, is that bottling up your emotions is not the answer. In fact, it causes more problems and deepens your depression. Watch.

Do you bottle up your emotions? Why and how has that affected your depression? And if you've quit doing that, do you notice a difference in how you feel? Comment below or send a response video to
