WHAT'S PUSHED DOWN, COMES UP: "We avoid asking for what we want, or dealing w/problems. Why do we avoid speaking our truth? Fear of the unknown, unacceptance, and rejection. You can push feelings down, but they eventually come up through anger or resentment. Eventually the truth surfaces, so why not avoid anger and resentment? Speaking your truth early on, increases self-esteem, confidence and empowerment. Next time you start to push down, let it up, you'll save a lot of time, energy and emotion!"
