Accept Your Emotions

Allow yourself to feel your feelings, so you don’t spend more energy avoiding them than you would on feeling them. This way you can focus on the situation, fully experience the feelings and maybe better understand why it hurts and what to do about it.

Research also indicates that writing about negative emotions made people less depressed and more positive about life than before they started writing.
