Where does the idea that you shouldn't talk about your emotions (especially if they're not "happy") come from? I ask because I understand this is a typically Mormon thing, but I'm reading a book about a woman who grew up in an emotionally distant family. She was completely non-religious, but never talking openly about emotions was a hallmark of her upbringing.
What causes people/families -- regardless of religion -- to do this? What are the roots of emotional suppression?
