So I think I figured out why I have anxiety and that's emotional instability. Is it possible to learn how to control your emotions in a healthy way even at 30 years old? I'm the type that holds things in and it eats away at me. I think that's what caused my nervous breakdown because I never learned how to release my emotions in a healthy way. I'm planning on seeing a counselor to help me. Anyone else bottle things up? What exactly are healthy emotions ? Is it ok to express anger or sadness or do you keep those types of emotions in? Thanks for any advice !!
