In The episode Jenny asks for anyone to leave comments on the “benefits of living a repressed life,” or “the benefits of repression.” If you have any ideas for the letter writer add them in the comments below. *NOTE: Just because something had a benefit to us for a period of time doesn’t necessarily mean we need it anymore.
