Fandango has given us REPRESS as our word prompt today.
I am very expressive, and some people say if you tied my hands behind my back, I’d be quiet.
This is one of the reasons I’m not keen on surprises. If I don’t like something or am disappointed, I am usually unable to repress my true feelings, and in so doing, would upset or offend someone who had done something special for me. This in turn would make me very sad, something else I would not be able to keep hidden.
I would hate to live in a world where your feelings are permanently repressed, where you are not allowed to express yourself, and where you have to conform to what others tell you.
Equilibrium is a 2002 film which depicts such a world, where any emotion is illegal under penalty of death. I hated it.
