“Sorrow concealed, like an oven stopp’d, doth burn the heart to cinders where it is.” – Titus Andronicus

My husband and I watched the film Antwone Fisher last night (we both ended up in tears).  One of the things it reminded me of was the power of catharsis, often helped along through the aid of a good psychologist (my mother was a psychologist, and the movie also reminded me very much of her).  I had a sound disagreement with my Aunt once, who told me that a person should never voice their hurts and their feelings because it’ll just make other people feel bad.  I have never disagreed with anything more.  As the quote above eloquently states, sorrow concealed only does damage in the end.
