I think this is true. Sitting with it rather than running away also builds some kind of resilience or at least familiarity with the feelings, and assurance that bad feelings will turn around/go away soon enough. In the beginning i overreacted massively to the lows which made them seem much worse. 2 nights ago I had a WD and sure enough i felt very low today... But you know what? When i'm feeling like that people seem to react very warmly to me. I don't know what causes it. Perhaps i just feel or appreciate their warmth more in that state? I dunno, i was pretty unsociable before the reboot and finding Pema. I don't think it's because i'm a certain type of person, i think it's because i got rid of some habits that were obstructing me from connecting with people. The main ones, which i've mentioned here a hundred times, were thinking of men as rivals and women as sex objects... "Ditching the ego" has been key, especially for interacting with men. The wife was away this week. She usually takes care of the kids from dinner to their bedtime, so i did that as well as the usual stuff. It went fine, and the house was pretty organized when she got back... But she jumped down my throat because the cat's water was low and i left an outside light on! It was bizarre, but thankfully i know what to do with outbursts like that now... (file under T for Two Year Old).
