Often, we try to escape our emotions instead of feeling them. However, escape leads to self-medication, usually in unhealthy forms. We were meant to feel various forms of being sad, lonely, bored, and stressed as part of our human experience. Allowing these emotions to dwell in us may be uncomfortable, but it is key to learning to cope with them in healthy ways. We need to learn to embrace our emotions, not escape them. Emotions are part of the mortal experience.
“Dr. Banner,” Captain America said, “Now might be a really good time for you to get angry.” “That’s my secret, Captain,” Dr. Banner replied, “I’m always angry.”
Bruce Banner had learned to embrace anger and control it, rather than trying to escape it and let it rule him.
“When you feel so mad that you could roar, take a deep breath and count to four.” – Daniel Tiger
