If I understand correctly, we are told that if we experience or process our emotion, it will pass through our body and leave in a short time. I am having trouble with this. Something upsetting happens and I allow myself to feel the sadness in my body but it just doesn't seem to leave. Hours or days later I still have the overwhelming feeling of sadness or anger or what the emotion might be. Does this mean I'm not really processing them? I'm consciously not avoiding the feeling as I once would have done, I'm feeling it in my body, but this doesn't seem to be working. Can anybody help?
