It is ok to drift off into your own darkness from time to time. Remember to allow yourself to feel as you feel – don’t judge yourself or criticise yourself because you don’t feel good right now – choose to back away from all the specifics of what is going on and just gently sooth and distract yourself into some relief.
It is ok to feel bad. It doesn’t make you a bad person! You are human – all emotions are valuable and they are all a big part of your experience.
This too shall pass. Think of your emotions as the air you breathe. Sometimes you breathe in air that does not feel so good – just take a new breath of cool, clear fresh air (=relief) and you will begin to feel better again.
