You cannot stop the waves, but you can learn to surf. Similarly, you cannot control your feelings, but you can learn to manage them. We only want pleasant feelings and don't want unpleasant ones. But both approaches are wrong. We can learn to accept feelings just the way they are. Feelings come and go, they are never permanent. Therefore, you can learn to let go eventually.
