Indulging vs accepting thoughts and feelings

Hi Brooke,
I am new SCS And this work/Program does not disappoint! Thank you and your team for a fabulous experience.

I have a question about the homework. I am wondering about the difference between “indulging” in thoughts and feelings and “allowing” thoughts and feelings. If I find myself modeling around the same types of thoughts and feelings am I indulging or studying? If I want to stop indulging in certain feelings, what are some helpful steps to take? How do I know that I am not just trying to avoid those feelings and not find the thoughts that cause them?

Some clarification would be helpful.
