Repressing an emotion means you know it’s happening but you don’t want to or don’t know how to express that emotion and you don’t experience it. In a way, emotional blocking means not understanding your emotion .

You repress your feelings because you think you shouldn’t be feeling them. This confusion makes you lose emotional freedom.

The issue here is not tolerating frustration. More so, if someone hasn’t experienced unpleasant emotions, they’re on a quest for pleasant emotions.
