When we don’t want to experience a feeling we distract ourselves.
I call it buffering.
It results in procrastination.
And over drinking.
And over Facebooking.
The result for us is that we waste time and energy avoiding a feeling that we are going to experience anyway.
What do you do when you do to distract yourself from experiencing feelings?
The alternative is to process your emotions. I can teach you how to do that. The first step is to start noticing.
