Failure, disappointment, sadness, loneliness and other occasional painful feelings don't make you abnormal. Give yourself permission to be human.
In our societies today, people are sometimes scared of their own emotions. Drug companies have become rich trying to find solutions to what we deem as 'scary emotions.' We want to block them out, we don't want to feel and learn from our feelings. But the sad truth is if you block out negative feelings, you are also blocking out the positive ones: Love, bliss, happiness, and compassion.
