Finding healthy ways to express our feelings is super important for our health and wellbeing. If we allow a feeling (like anger) to bubble without expressing it, it can build up so much that it explodes and this may come out in unhealthy or not-very-nice ways, like shouting at someone else for no reason.
Jamie feels worried a lot of the time. Everything seems to worry Jamie. It feels like all the worries in the world are building up into a big pile, sometimes it feels like a wall of worries. Jamie tries not to think about what is happening or the feelings.
