The pervasive nature of emotional repression

Carrie JordanHealth & Beauty, Life Design, Shamanism

Our society is addicted to sugar, coffee, TV, the internet, food, shopping, our phones, and lots of other things. We squelch and squash our emotions back into our bodies by self-medicating with our addictions, avoiding our feelings and our lives.
