I hear some variation on this question a lot.
If I’m feeling discomfort and I know an untrue thought is behind it, why lean into that discomfort?

When someone asks a version of this question my curiosity always goes to a question for them:
Why not just feel?
Turns out, there are many “reasons” we don’t want to feel. We’ll explore some of them in this episode.
