To clarify feelings not unsafe is what is hard to handle. Bad wording sorry and I'm on my phone so I can't edit

Re: [SPECIAL GUEST] Dealing with feelings

Hey @j95 ! Back for another night, I see. Smiley Tongue

My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

Re: [SPECIAL GUEST] Dealing with feelings

Are big feelings okay sometimes? When might they be okay, when might they not be okay?

 

Big feelings are okay and natural but the most important thing is how you handle them and whether or not they are affecting your life on a daily basis.

I think big feelings are okay sometimes. I think some intense things can happen in life and intense emotions are a natural response! I think they might not be so okay if they lead to situations where you might not feel safe, or if they intefere with things you want to do or relationships and friendships you might want to have.

Re: [SPECIAL GUEST] Dealing with feelings

It can be hard to know how to handle them, especially when they hit us hard and fast, it can feel like we are unsafe. There are lots of skills and strategies we can use to manage this though, hopefully we can go through some tonight!

Re: [SPECIAL GUEST] Dealing with feelings

It would seem like we are all pretty much in agreement, they're natural but it's the impact that can be the bit that's not okay! We can explore some strategies a bit later about dealing with the impact!

Hi @j95! Welcome!

I agree with you @Ben-RO. Big feelings are often natural and inevitable. They move towards not being okay when it leads to uncomfortable feelings or behaviours. 

Re: [SPECIAL GUEST] Dealing with feelings

I always seem to miss them @j95 Hahaha
