When you feel the rise of unpleasant emotions, take a moment and make an effort to identify their source. The answers are far more available than you may have previously believed. Accept such feelings as your own in the moment. Do not shove them underneath, ignore them or try to substitute what you think of as good thoughts.

Bette Davis touches up her eyeliner on the set of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962). She created her own makeup for the part, explaining, “What I had in mind no professional makeup man would have dared to put on me… I felt Jane never washed her face, just added another layer of makeup each day.”

You cannot will yourself to be happy while believing that you have no right to happiness, or that you are unworthy of it. You cannot tell yourself to release aggressive thoughts if you think it is wrong to free them, so you must come to grips with your beliefs in all instances.
