What does the Four of Cups mean?

RWS 2.0 Four of CupsHere is a pithy meaning for the Four of Cups:
Having grown up in an emotionally repressive environment, you learned to suppress and hide your feelings. That coping mechanism is now stifling your ability to find happiness in your life.

At the risk of making this meaning for the Four of Cups even less pithy, I want to add a note about a way out of the problem indicated by it: Listen to your Inner Child and give him or her the warmth, love, and compassion that you failed to get in your youth.
