common phrases we use to invalidate feelings. Why? What are we so afraid of??? From my observations, FEELINGS run our lives! Every day!

Be real. Extend compassion to yourself and others when experiencing painful emotions. They are a part of human experience. No need for lectures - just extend compassion & understanding.
