Smile Emotional Repressions and their Release - Ties with Emotional Freedom Tapping?

I have found that information about the Emotional Repressions and Release very interesting and helpful, in overcoming many of the negative emotions, allowing me to gain clarity, and helping me to realize more of who I am.

This is basically a copy-paste of this thread: personalitycafe.com/threads/mbti-emotional-repressions-developments-and-how-they-manifest-in-art-and-actions.1315321/

The Five Emotional Repressions have been discussed by Neale Donald Walsch, in his book Conversations with God. Basically:

Sadness is natural emotion that allows people to let go of something or someone important to them. When people feel it's wrong to experience sadness, and therefore, repress it, then it becomes depression-pessimism.

Anger is a natural emotion that allows people to say no. When people feel it's wrong to be angry, and it becomes repressed, then anger turns to rage.

Fear is a natural emotion that allows people to be more cautious and self-protective. When people feel it's wrong to feel scared or fearful, then it becomes repressed, and can turn to panic.

Envy is a natural emotion that encourages people to expand their horizons, enlarge their expectations, and to strive for something. When people feel it's wrong to be envious, then it can turn to jealousy through repression.

Love is a natural emotion that allows people to give and receive without limit or conditions. When people feel it's wrong to love someone under whatever condition or limitation, then love becomes repressed, and can turn to possessiveness.

Unconditional Love means that no matter who the person is, he deserves to be understood and respected.

There is one other emotion not mentioned, and that's belief:

Belief is a natural emotion that allows people to trust others around him. When people feel it's wrong to be trusting or unconditionally believing in the goodness of others, then it becomes repressed, which can become suspiciousness.

Unconditional Belief entails that no matter what people do, they are always correct and right in their decision.

For Unconditional Love and Unconditional Belief, I have covered the two topics in greater detail in this thread: Five Emotions and Their Pathologies Caused by...

(July 23, 2020) There appears to be two more Emotional Repressions that can be released:

Acceptance - Unconditional Acceptance means that no matter who the person is, he is to be accepted. Repressed acceptance means there will likely be discrimination, or arrogance against certain people.

Trust - Unconditional Trust means that no matter the circumstance, everything will work out for the best. Repressed Trust means being overly anxious when situations change.

(August 23, 2020) There appears to be two other Emotional Repression that can be released:

Forgiveness - Forgiveness is a natural emotion that allows people to be considerate of others. When people feel it's wrong to forgive unconditionally, they tend to hold grudges, which limits their chances of making rightful choices.

Regret - Regret is a natural emotion that allows people to remember their mistakes, or the choices they've made, and especially, didn't make. When people feel it's wrong to regret things, they tend to be too careful of what they do, and sometimes, won't take action even if it feels right. However, knowing that their action is determined by what they know at the time, regret can be released (with the help of Trust), so the person can better face the future. Furthermore, the risk for releasing Regret is that the person might become reckless with her physical body, which requires heightening the Expectation of the Physical Body.

Besides the release of emotional repressions, it's also possible to release stress and anxiety (factors gotten from daily living):

Stress is what makes people crave sweets and sugary foods

Anxiety makes people crave fats or fatty foods

Hi thank you for showing this. With me

I can seem to get very angry but am inside frighten, so first feeling out to show others is sort of delusional...Some folks who work on wanting others and themselves to come of as strong and tough can in reality, minus the air built attitude etc, feel the opposite.
