Hi Orchid,

I hope it’s OK with you and Daisy if I jump in…

I think sometimes the goal isn’t exactly about overcoming feelings… Sometimes it’s all about experiencing feelings and working through them. And that’s a process that can take quite a long time.

Different approaches suit different people, and sometimes it’s important not to try to suppress the feelings. Sometimes the feelings simply can’t be suppressed or overcome; they can only be managed and contained as far as possible. It takes as long as it takes. But trying to rush it to overcome the feelings isn’t always the best course of action. It can be counterproductive if the feelings are very powerful.

Just my two cents…
