How to use repressing in a sentence?

  1. Stephen Covey:

    Lose/Win people bury a lot of feelings. And unexpressed feelings come forth later in uglier ways. Psychosomatic illnesses often are the reincarnation of cumulative resentment, deep disappointment and disillusionment repressed by the Lose/Win mentality. Disproportionate rage or anger, overreaction to minor provocation, and cynicism are other embodiments of suppressed emotion. People who are constantly repressing, not transcending feelings toward a higher meaning find that it affects the quality of their relationships with others.

  2. Aaron David Miller:

    If Saudi Arabia kidnapped or killed Jamal Kashoggi, Saudi Arabia's on them, there's no direct causality, but the question remains, to what degree the Donald Trump administration's acquiescence to Saudi Arabia emboldened the Saudi leadership to think it can do what it likes, both in repressing dissent at home and pursuing policies abroad that frankly in my judgment... have been undermining Aaron David Miller national interests.

  3. Mwanandeke Kindembo:

    The student must be allowed to develop his thinking ability and creativity, instead of repressing them from an early age.

  4. Marco Rubio:

    I will give the Castros a choice: either continue repressing your people and lose the diplomatic relations and benefits provided by President Obama, or carry out meaningful political and human rights reforms and receive increased U.S. trade, investment, and support.
