I recall reading this quote in an article about the importance of dealing with your emotions, and it really resonated with me
“When you’re busy trying to numb your emotions, your emotions are in the next room doing push ups”
Unfortunately, uncomfortable emotions such as sadness or anger don’t magically disappear when we don’t want to feel them
The longer we try to push away unwanted emotions, the stronger they might become
So instead, we need to learn how to lean into the emotions, and to “feel all of the feels”
We shouldn’t fear our emotions.
They are all part of the human experience!
