Emotions come in waves

I stumbled across this little article today, which reminds us that emotions come in waves. They have a beginning, a middle, and an end. And most importantly, emotions do not last forever.

A quick quote:
An emotion cannot hold you permanently. Every individual wave of emotion is merely a temporary state. Your mind and body are constantly in motion and are, in fact, incapable of maintaining a permanent, singular state of being. We're dynamic by nature and time rolls on, utterly unstoppable.
I often say this to clients. The one thing that I can confidently say about any emotion is that it will not last forever. It will change, shift, and mostly like it will go away after time. It's important, in the middle of intense fear or sadness or whatever, to be able to remember that emotions are temporary states.

Here is the full article.
