Emotions Just Are
In letting go of resistance, I learn resilience. In releasing the need to control or define a situation, I gain peace as my anxiety is much more calm. I enjoyed how the meditation teacher had a repetition of "Let go" in the moments of release. It's so easy to resist emotions. If I can accept them, then they don't have power over me. Initially, it's akin to allowing the emotion to hit me. Then, after giving up resistance, I find that emotions can't hurt me. That is, if I don't allow them to. Emotions just are.
