> When I started therapy, I talked a lot about being haunted by feelings. My therapist would ask me to just sit with them, sit still and quiet and just "listen" to them. Focus on your breathing and if your mind wanders to things like dinner, bring it back, and focus on your breathing. I found this very hard because I always ended up in tears and didn't know why. It has gotten somewhat easier to do this, but I'd still rather write.

I did this with some really disturbing feelings I'd had recently, and it was kind of enlightening, even tho' I wanted like hell to get rid of the feelings. It can be very uncomfortable to just sit with them, but I understand the process.
