Is there a way to reduce negative emotions?

Is this notion that we should hide or reduce negative emotions even a healthy expectation?

Can those kind of beliefs diminish our personal self esteem?

Can this belief be used to diminish the regard we have for others? Are those expectations, in autocratic environments culturally insensitive?

when you believe
that your needs matter
less than
those of the group
that your emotions have little importance
your needs hold less value compared to others
you are more less likely to understand
(at least at an emotional level)
the emotions you are having
and how they’re connected
how they differ
and their associations to previous histories, or faulty narratives in your life…
