#167 – You can feel your emotions and not act on them. Kali Munro, Psychotherapist

Focusing your attention on your negative emotions strengthens them. One of the methods used in trauma therapy for crime victims is to allow the emotion to take hold, acknowledge it, then turn the attention back to whatever the person was doing initially. Turns out if you don’t feed your negative emotions or fight them, often they will go away on their own.

Lots and lots of flowers blooming right now.

About sand1

When I was young, I made a lot of bad choices. The only way I knew to dig myself and my family out was to go to the library, always hoping that the next book I read would change my life and thankfully, often many of them did. Out of gratitude for the happy life I have now, I decided to share what I have learned, and continue to learn. I hope that Tuesday Tips helps you as much as they have helped and continue to help me.
