What is the difference between stewing and giving yourself permission to feel unpleasant emotions?
Treat them as guests to your house.
Be curious about them.
Suspend judgment and evaluate stories and inaccurate beliefs.
What can you learn about those “guests” at your house?
Do you know them all by name?
You don’t have to let them spend the night or move into your house.
And at a minimum, identify who they are, which emotions they are and when you have time let them into your proverbial house and have them stay for coffee. Have a conversation with them. Ask them questions. But again, suspend judgment.
That is the difference between handling your emotions productively and from a healthy perspective versus stewing on them, not identifying them and not letting them in your house and having a discussion with them and be curious about them.
