I suppose that you don’t kill a feeling. Much like that pesky moth that won’t quite leave you alone, you swat at it for a while before moving on and eventually it will fly away. With moths, the process takes a few second. With life and feelings, it can take hours, days and months. Years even. I guess that at this moment in time I ave to trust that the feeling will fly away. I have to watch it fly around and hope that it loses interest and leaves me alone, because you can’t really kill a feeling, you can just mute it, or process it enough that it’s no longer at the forefront.
Like most things in life, that is easier said than done.
