The inability to express one’s feelings and “pour out” is often referred to as emotional suppression or suppression of emotions. Emotional suppression refers to the act of intentionally pushing emotions, thoughts, and feelings out of one’s conscious awareness in order to manage them in a more functional way.
While emotional suppression can be a coping mechanism for individuals in some short-term situations, it can become problematic when it is used consistently over time.
