Pent up emotions kept under lock and key[This thread is the first prize joint winner of the topic-based TOW of November 2017]
Every person faces ups and downs in his or her life. Some face problems in childhood, others in their youth and they continue in the later stages of life.
Some can be overpowered and forgotten with the passage of time but some don't heal easily.
They can spread like slow poison trying to overpower our mind and soul and make us helpless sometimes. We often keep our deepest troubles to ourselves hidden under lock and key inside our heart.
But what happens if someone comes suddenly and unexpectedly tries to find a key to the door of our problem?
What happens if they try to gain unauthorized access to our fears and troubles?
It releases our pent up emotions over the years and erupts again in the form of anger, pain and sometimes even violence. It is a part of human nature which is out of bounds to even us in terms of control.
We relive the pain again and blame this trespasser for trying to play with our emotions which we had long kept under lock and key.
Members, do you also face situations where hiding the secrets and pain becomes necessary? How do you react if someone ties to find the key to your emotions without your permission?
