Very often I come across people who are very uncomfortable with experiencing difficult emotions. They feel that it is not good to experience anything negative.
All the positive talk has made us fearful of negative feelings. We feel we should not get any negative thoughts or feelings. Really, is that even possible? Instead if we acknowledge, allow and accept our feelings, we have the choice to make appropriate decisions according to them. We can choose to regulate and even release these feelings.
I hope you like this doodle that illustrates this very clearly.
Wanting to ‘Always’ be in a’ positive state’ is like staying in a bubble that can easily burst with the slightest negative feeling.
Acknowledging and being comfortable with ‘experiencing’ difficult feelings as and when they arise is much more helpful.
