And telling me not to feel them is basically just deadening my soul.
I move from wave to wave.
I think maybe the key for me, is to have my neutral state be more like a quiet joy or contentment. That way even if I'm in wave, or a in a dip, I learn to move back to that quiet joy.
When someone disappoints or cuts me, I can ride that wave and get back to quiet joy.
I do think my mental space is important and to figure out what is the appropriate amount of mental space things or people should take.
What is important to me? What are my values?
