Reason Why...

We suppress our emotion because, we don't want to get hurt, the fear of being vulnerable, labelled a cry baby, defense mechanism, societal expectations etc. Therefore, as a result, we forget that concealing our emotions can have some pretty significant effects on physical and emotional health.

Although, this is more common in men than in females, due to the expectations the society has placed on them (A man should be always seen as a tough and hard guy). Forgetting that If they keep hiding their emotions it could get to a stage of being self destructive causing emotional and mental breakdown.

Nota Bien.

Concealing our Emotions is rather common at times. In tense or public settings, it may even seem like the best course of action.

However, you wind up rejecting your own experience when you keep your emotions to yourself out of concern for other people's opinions. This may appear to be a sensible strategy to steer clear of disagreement and emotional distress, but in the end, it generally backfires.

It's not always simple to learn how to communicate emotions honestly, but your loved ones or a therapist can help overcome your fear of the possible repercussions and talk more freely.
