How about we reframe "negative" emotions and feelings into feelings and emotions we can't handle YET.
We tend to label what feels uncomfortable as "negative". But imagine becoming comfortable with feeling all of your feelings? Wouldn't that be great?! Imagine if feeling your feelings, is what helps you digest them, assimilate them and discharge them so they don't become STUCK? Allowing them to flow in, through and out of our bodies and minds ...
Make a list of the feelings that are really uncomfortable for you to feel, the ones you want to avoid like the plague. And start tapping on allowing yourself to feel them.
Even though I can't handle feeling hopeless, maybe I can allow myself to feel 10% of that feeling and it'll get easier and easier to feel it
Even though I can't feel ... YET, I accept myself anyway
Even though I'm afraid to feel ... because ... I accept myself anyway
