How to Beat Bad Feelings by Letting Yourself Have Them
The first book to cut right to the chase, teaching you how to accept and feel your feelings with self-compassion for greater emotional health and wellbeing, while making you laugh from time to time.
It’s tempting to turn away from menacing, uncomfortable feelings like anger, grief, or regret; but ignoring them makes them fester and linger.

Constructive wallowing seems like an oxymoron. Constructive is a good thing, but wallowing is bad. Right? But wait a minute; is it really so terrible to give ourselves a time-out to feel our feelings? Or is it possible that wallowing is an act of loving kindness, right when we need it most?
It seems that the wisdom of keeping your friends close and your enemies closer applies to emotions as well as people. It’s tempting to turn away from menacing, uncomfortable feelings like anger, grief or regret and treat them like unwanted guests; however, ignoring them just seems to make them stick around.
By learning to accept and embrace rather than suppress difficult feelings, readers keep their sense of personal power and gain greater understanding and ultimately esteem for themselves. Feeling bad can actually lead to feeling better, faster!
