The fast-paced and super-connected world we live in now is taking its toll on all of us. Everyday we must navigate through a constant stream of emotionally-charged information, both from current events and the changes and challenges we face in our own lives.

We experience emotional distress in all sorts of ways, as sadness, anxiety, addictions, unproductive obsessions, unwanted compulsions, repetitive self-sabotaging behaviors, physical ailments, boredom, and as all sorts of angry, bleak, and agitated moods.

Often, for whatever reason, we push those emotions and feelings away, storing them in the back of our minds, packaging them up neatly, and denying they ever existed.

When we make a habit of suppressing those emotions, they build up, become many voices, and are more difficult to ignore. You may notice that your moods become more erratic, or that you are having a difficult time focusing.

You may even eventually shut down, detach, and begin to feel hollow or empty.
