When Someone Really Listens, We Heal

When Someone Really Listens, We Heal | Healthy Marriage Links and Clips | Scoop.it

Sharing our deepest feelings with a trusted individual can be a healing experience, especially for those experiencing depression. Never underestimate the power of talking with someone who really listens.

 

Our culture doesn’t encourage people to

talk about their emotional pain.

 

Our culture teaches people to suppress their feelings. People tell each other not to “whine” about problems or not to “dwell” on them. People are told to “get over it” and to “be strong,” meaning “don’t feel anything—and if you do, don’t talk about it or show it.”
