Keeping it buried isn't going to help anyone. Because even if you're not consciously aware of it, it's there, affecting your reality in significant ways. Until and unless you find the hurts, release them, and heal them, they're going to keep right on affecting your reality.
Yes, you'll have some pain for a while, but pain is just pain, and nothing more. It's like opening up an infected wound in order to clean it out. It hurts! But then it can heal properly and stop spreading infection throughout your system.
Same thing with unprocessed and unhealed emotional, psychic, and mental injuries.
