When we fight against our feelings, especially the negative ones, they do not go away. They become energised and grow.
Often when I get angry, I get angry about being angry. I tell myself I should just be floating on a cloud, all calm and zen-like. ‘I know how to deal with this…I shouldn’t be angry’ is what I tell myself and that causes more anger!
However, all feelings are there for a reason and we could choose to welcome them. To learn why we feel that way and to use it as our guide.
Funnily, the moment we accept and welcome our negative states, the sooner they subside and go. Energy goes where our focus goes and resistance and fighting something is a negative energy.
