Dealing with repressed emotions

As a child, I kept my emotions to myself, because my childhood wasn’t a particularly happy one. Of course, things are different now because I’ve learned to deal with repressed emotions, by talking about things.

Many of us will know someone who lives and has made an occupation of being an eternal sceptic. I know I do. People who continually choose to question or throw doubt on another person’s knowledge.
