You may convince yourself not to share your feelings now, but this isn’t a viable long-term strategy. Sometimes, it’s just easier to keep everything to yourself. But this isn’t about taking the course of least resistance, because anything that isn’t said now will only strengthen in intensity. You will still need to deal with your feelings eventually; if you keep your emotions hidden, they will just turn up as a projection. Your smartest defense is to react honestly and kindly in the present moment.
