Organizations and even families have their own type of culture and the largest differences around emotions are called cultural-display rules.
All cultures recognize the basic emotions and they’re all expressed the same way, but those display rules, which are a function of our culture, tell us how do we show those emotions. How we express these is completely driven by those cultural-display rules. If you don't know those, you’re seen as an outlier. And maybe as lacking what people would call communication skills.
Great long-term interpersonal relationships (in terms of quality) are based on shared experience but also the ability to share how we are feeling at that time.
And if we are always expected to say positive stuff, we won't be able to reach that level of intimacy that we need in a really good relationship.
Knowing that will help you better manage your emotions and express your feelings in a way that will send a good accurate message.
