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.  Finding benefits is simply a way to loosen our grip on the subconscious, “self-protective” pattern, and NOW consciously learn ways to get those benefits met in a new and healthier way.
