Afraid to color outside the lines, stuck in a rut, one who does not take chances or try new things outside of one's comfort zone.

To avoide doing or even thinking about something you want to do very much. The main reason for not doing it is fear of guilt or losing the respect from a parent or peer. In fact, you make yourself believe that you really don't even want to do the thing you are repressing.
Shasha: "Cindy, do you want to go clubbing and get wasted? Maybe we will pick up some guys."

Cindy:" No, my mom won't approve and dancing and guys shouldn't be appealing to me anyway. I think I will stay home, knit and drink water. Yeah! that sounds much more fun!"

Shasha (to self) : "She has repression bad"

Coke that is cut on usually a wholesale level that is usually cut with procaine or benzocaine and mixed with acetone that is pressed with a large press machine to make it the coke into one solid piece to make it look like it might be uncut but people who truly seen lots of coke still can tell the difference.
Person one says "Yo I think this caine might be uncut because it is rock" Person 2 respond "nah man I can tell that it is repressed because it doesn't have that flaky glossy look."

Having to repress true feelings as a way to cope with life as you're expected to, without disappointing the enviourment surrounding you. Typically by a leader-type person who is looked up upon, and is trustworthy, especially in dire situations.

Often repressed feelings breed creativity and originality, and are common among artists. As they cannot express their feelings in a common way, they must find another way to express themselves.

OPPOSITE: Panicing mothers worldwide make the mistake of over reacting when their babies are getting hurt, thus causing needless extra stress to the babies. Causing them to over cling to the mother as she has no other friend but them, so they are delaying their development so they won't be lonely when the baby gets independent.
eg Fun-loving John with his feelings repressed
playing the piano charming every lass.

eg When the shit breaks down, you can count on John to get his job done.

eg John draws sketchs once in a while when he has free time on his hands. They are very good, but he keeps them private, as the sketchs he draws are usually unpleasant.

eg John hit his foot by kicking the pavement barefoot. His Mom gave him a warm hug and told him to walk it off. Seeing from a distance he was walking fine, His Mom knew John wasn't hurt.

Not acknowledging negative feelings is true repression. Not allowing other people to acknowledge theirs because you don't acknowledge yours is the worst kind of repression/oppression.
For someone that claimed to be such a free spirit, repression was something she used at many oppurtune times to benefit from doing so.
