Thread: Talking about your feelings, is it good or bad?

    Talking about your feelings, is it good or bad?

    I was watching a documentary about Rio Ferdinand and how he encourages his children to talk about their feelings because of the loss of their mother and it was heartbreaking but so lovely that they could talk openly about how they feel.

    I then thought about a dear friend of mine who died of cancer leaving her two children behind and they barely talked about their mum because they couldn’t remember her.

    My question is, should you have one foot in the past or look to the future and remember your loved ones inside but not talk about them every day? I just feel it is a good to talk in the short term but has damaging effects in the long term.

    I think it is good to be open, bottling up in the long term causes ill health, emotional instability and resentment.

    It means issues are dealt with early before they are allowed to fester and become big issues. Also, the feelings can be understood and when people understand what you’re going through daily it helps people to support you through those moments.

    Always good, but not too much otherwise you begin to alienate yourself from others.

    I have friends who are so needy and almost energy sucking if I can say that?

    I think people share a lot of themselves and I have done so myself with support from people which is lovely but I have found it has been used against me many times when people who are toxic have played mind games knowing I have had a breakdown so they can say, “Oh, she’s just sensitive, it’s all in her head”. I am going to keep my feelings to myself if I meet new people so in my opinion it’s good to share a little but not too much

    I think we have become a nation of over sharers and there is a time and a place to share your feelings, or am I old fashioned?
