This week's #FridayFacts: feelings and emotions

#FridayFacts

Every Friday we'll post some 'facts' and information about mental health. This week's facts focus on 'myths about feelings and emotions'. Please see the picture below.
 
EXTRA INFO: Emotions are something that we all experience, and yet so many people misunderstand or apply judgements against them. Misunderstandings sometimes lead to individuals being mocked, shamed or dismissed for feeling and expressing emotion (or for not publicly expressing emotions, especially in times of grief).
 
There are numerous myths or misunderstandings about emotions that lead to people feeling they need to bottle everything up inside or not express themselves, but that can just lead to things building up inside of us over time. And what happens when something is held in and builds up and up and up? Eventually it explodes! This explosion can come in the form of tantrums, tears, anger or even violence, and unhelpful coping techniques.
 
If you are have some feelings or emotions you would like to talk to someone about, please get in contact and we can link you up with an experienced and qualified psychotherapist, CBT therapist or counsellor here at Talking ED (online or in our offices in Glasgow city centre:

Take care and have a great weekend!
