Telly, I really do agree with you on this. I think that part of Hold's problem is that in the process of keeping his anger under wraps, maybe he never found a healthy way to get rid of it and maybe even thought it wasn't necessary. So he buried it, and it developed into depression.

I think it's important to note that it simply is not enough to hold it in, just because it seems like the easiest and most noble thing to do to avoid outside problems with others. We avoid or eat certain foods to keep our bodies from suffering. Why, then, don't we treat our emotional health with equal care?
