Negative emotions
If you are having trouble letting go of negative emotions, it's important to recognize that these feelings are normal. Negative feelings are a result of the behavior of the brain. You have the power to decide how to deal with them. While it is natural to feel sad, angry, and other negative feelings, you may find that they are controlling your behavior. To prevent this from happening, you should learn how to let go of negative emotions.

Unprocessed childhood trauma
The concept of repressed feelings and memories is a relatively recent one, and yet it has been around for centuries. It is thought that memory is a highly valued cognitive ability that is crucial to normal functioning, and that we learn to store and retrieve our experiences. Repression, a process by which people deliberately forget an experience, can be a helpful coping mechanism. Unfortunately, the consequences of unprocessed childhood trauma may be disastrous, and therapists have begun exploring the concept.

Mindfulness-Based Emotional Balance
A program called "Mindfulness-Based Emotional Balance" (MBEB) has proven to be a powerful tool for resolving conflicting emotions and cultivating healthy emotions. It is a scientifically-validated program that is available online beginning February 13, 2020. The MBEB curriculum teaches participants to cultivate emotional regulation skills that will help them cope with high-stress environments. Participants learn how to manage conflicting needs and manage intense emotional reactions.

Ignoring negative emotions
Ignoring negative emotions when releasing revoked feelings can have adverse health effects. Ignoring negative feelings can make them worse and may lead to a variety of unhealthy behaviors. For instance, avoiding confrontation with a friend or partner can result in a bad burn. However, this is not the only side effect of ignoring negative feelings. This can also lead to physical and mental health issues.

Naming repressed feelings
Repressed feelings are emotions that you have pushed down in the past, denying them a voice. These feelings remain in your mind and body and may wreak havoc in your life, both directly and indirectly. Let's explore what we mean by repressed feelings, and how we can begin to name them and let go of them. Here are some examples of repressed emotions that can be helpful to name when letting go.


Dealing with difficult emotions
If you have trouble dealing with difficult emotions, there are a few tips to consider. While these feelings are normal, they shouldn't be a permanent part of your life. You can learn to deal with them by observing them, responding to them with empathy and compassion, and investigating the reasons for their emergence. When you're faced with an upsetting emotion, try to control it as mindfully as possible, and try not to ignore it. Negative emotions are a sign of a looming mental health issue, so learn to recognize them before they become a problem.
