Sometimes it is important to feel your feelings deeply. I do want to note that what I am saying does not mean that you have to go deeply into every feeling the moment it comes up. Sometimes feelings need to be put off until a while later, when it is more convenient. For example, I do not want a brain surgeon experiencing traumatic childhood feelings during an operation. Consciously deciding to occasionally postpone your feelings is not the same as burying your feelings, as long as you keep “your agreement” with your psyche to feel the feelings later.
