    Interesting topic. Got my thoughts going lol.

    I think it’s extremely difficult for most of us (myself included) to move away from even seeing emotions as ‘negative’ and ‘positive’. I mean some emotions just don’t feel good and so I get it. I also wonder whether our framing of this sort of thing is part of it. I mean excitement / anxiety are similar physiologically but given the circumstances we hold one as more positive than the other. I feel like getting to know our feelings is so important. Hurt for e.g. not nice to feel, but I’m finding it brings me into a much more compassionate relationship with myself… and that feels nice 🙂
