I get this buddhist email newsletter and today it said, 4 words to help you deal with strong emotions: real but not true.
@QwyrdoAD I'm glad! it's another way of putting something i struggle with a lot and am working on, the idea that my very strong emotions won't destroy me, they needn't change anything, and are not shameful. I'm trying to accept that I will always feel things very strongly & that feeling terror or despair doesn't mean I've failed again to cope with life, it's just the way I experience life, is transient, & it's a way of experiencing life very fully.
@QwyrdoAD I suppose those are different points actually but another facet of being someone with unstable/intense emotions. Anxiety can be really scary & tell you things which feel very real. Real but not true! :3
