3 Reasons Why You’re Unable to Express Your Feelings

Nathan Perkins • October 9, 2020

Some people are in touch with their feelings and have no trouble being true to themselves. Meanwhile, others choose to bury their emotions and find it difficult to say how they feel.

Learning how to open your heart and allow others to understand how you’re feeling is a major step to becoming open and honest and showing your authentic self. It makes you a better friend, parent, and partner. If you have trouble doing this, here are some reasons why you can’t express your feelings properly:

1. Fear of rejection

The fear of rejection is a powerful fear that can hinder you from staying true to yourself and may cause you to please people and swallow your feelings. You may even put up with abuse, let others have control over you, and let them have their way so you can meet their expectations.

Over time, this common fear can become crippling and stop you from achieving your fullest potential. If you find that it’s limiting your life, consider seeking a trustworthy online therapist. Talking to a professional can help you understand more about the contributions to your fear and find effective ways to deal with it.

2. Low self-esteem

Having low self-esteem means that you lack confidence. Your harsh inner critic may tell you that you are inadequate, incompetent, and unloveable, and that people wait for you to make a mistake or do something embarrassing. Because of this, it’s difficult for you to open yourself up to others and believe that they could see you in a positive light.

The good news is that it’s completely possible for you to overcome this vulnerability. To combat your negative self-image, learn to stop listening to your critical inner voice and start being compassionate to yourself. If you’re having difficulty with the self-doubt in your mind, we can help you find an online therapist whom you can trust and rely on.

Our service works by letting you receive rich text-based therapy and optional video therapy through your phone or computer. All records of your conversations are treated with strict confidentiality. These are encrypted and stored securely, so you can ease your mind knowing everything you share is kept private and safe.

3. Hopelessness

When you’re hopeless, you acknowledge that your relationship with others is problematic, and although you are frustrated with your situation, you are convinced that it will never improve no matter what you do.

You may also feel that you have already tried everything to change the position you’re in, only for nothing to ever work. Because of this, you simply accepted the fact that you are trapped, and trying something new won’t do you any good.

Being hopeless is a sign of giving up. Just like any grim situation, you can overcome it, and you don’t have to do it alone. You can seek help from experienced professionals who are knowledgeable about dealing with circumstances like yours.
