Does allowing discouragement/discomfort get easier?

Hello coaches! I am working on allowing discomfort rather than trying to switch it too quickly to a positive feeling that avoids allowing the negative feeling to run its course. How long is this discomfort supposed to last? I woke up feeling discouraged and allowed it, then noticed it was there multiple times throughout the day. Then I feel discouraged about discouragement because I think it shouldn’t be lasting all day! So when I ask myself if I’m willing to feel discomfort 5 times a day — the answer is no, and I buffer with Netflix. Does allowing discomfort get easier? Or do you just get used to it the more that you do it? It feels like the guy in Matrix who gets awakened, and then eventually wants to go back to unconsciousness into the Matrix. Ugh. Thank you so much for your wisdom!
