English expressions

Bottle up

Meaning: to hold one's feelings

within. Not to express one's emotions.

Examples; - My mum always warns us not bottle our sadness up, because it will grow worse and worse.

- Let's resolve our last night's argument. You shouldn't bottle it up.

- Poor Mary got a serious disease and has to stay at hospital for months. She's paying the price of bottling up her feelings for years.

- If things go wrong like this, take action immediately or ask for help. You don't have to hold in your resentment or frustration.

- Depression is the result of holding in pain and rage. To avoid that, try to cope with frustration before it reaches its boiling point.

    Correct me, if I understood it wrong. The phrase verb to bottle up means that you converse the problem like you are packing it into the bottle to hide and no to express to anybody.

    @Mikhail the phrase bottle up means that we do not express our emotions. Instead, we keep everything “bottled up” inside. And the end result of that is the bottle eventually exploded from too much pent up feelings. Hope that helps

    Why was mary paying the price of bottling up her feelings in the hospital? If I don't battle my feelings up I will be hospitalized?! 😰
