The more I sit with emotions the more I see that trying to be good with concepts is really avoiding how I feel. 

Yes...don't be deceived by the pull of thoughts, sensation/feeling is always primary 🙏

You can do the same to emotions as to thoughts.  Those emotions are not yours.  You can pull that "I thought" out of emotions.

If it seems like emotion is yours or belonging to anyone, that is actually a thought and not sensation.

Yes. Very wise & quite intuitive. Without avoidance the amazing thing is how you feel is, Good. The ‘a void ance’ must make it seem as if there’s a whole lot of good & bad.
