Acceptance and processing of painful and unwelcome emotions is a skill we can learn. But it’s not an easy one. We naturally avoid pain, unpleasant emotions and uncomfortable interactions.

For this episode, I wanted to share a tool for easier acceptance and processing of the things we normally avoid. After all, we can’t completely block negative or unwanted emotions and thoughts, so why not learn to handle them better? Let’s talk about it.

“When that struggle switch is switched on, and it’s turned up high… it’s going to amplify all of those emotions, the ones you don’t like.” – Dr. Sara Dill
