How did the author reach the conclusion that emotions are dismissed? Anyone who pays attention to the culture at large can see that's not the case. Not that our culture wouldn't improve from a healthy dose of stoicism. Our culture is seeped in emotions, outrage, trigger warnings, and safe spaces for when our feelings are hurt. Give me suppressed emotions any day.

What we do as a result of feelings is important. But my own experience suggests that experiencing them is an important part of good mental hygiene.
