I bottle my feelings up. I’ve been doing so all my life. And it’s finally caught up with me in the form of extreme anxiety and stress. Does anyone else feel the same way?

Hey, I don’t bottle up feelings, but I’ve mostly bottled up my secrets from my closest set of people. So I do know how you feel perhaps.

Hi!
I always suggest to everyone and I do this too, I open up with my friends to release the frustation and vent out and/or I cry to calm down and feel better.

It’s never a solution to bottle up because it then eats you from the inside which in your case it has and will lead to negativity rather than happiness and overcoming that whole thing.

Hey! Yes i know exactly how you’re feeling. I created an account on this site today for this exact reason. I have friends whom i’ve Known for a decade and I still can’t truly open up to them. For years, i’ve been bottling up my feelings and making up excuses for whenever my friends caught me crying my eyes out. I’m genuinely exhausted of pretending and knowing that other people feel the same is actually relieving, it makes me feel less alone even though i’m Physically surrounded by loved ones. Anyway, if you feel the need to talk to someone you’ll never meet here’s ur chance it might be a good way to open up and have less things going on in your mind. Byeeeee

@cpyl

Thanks everyone for your advice. Does anyone know a good way to start opening up? Even when you’re not sure what to say when you start.

Hi! I absolutely understand. I used to do that a lot, I still do. But I think it’s important to recognise this pattern of repressing our emotions. If you keep putting something away in a box, it will eventually catch up with you, and then it’s confusing to know what to do about it. If you can, reach out to a therapist, because emotional wellbeing is extremely important!
